The Brighton Police Department is seeking help from the community to identify two witnesses of a carjacking that occurred on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 55 W. Bromley Ln. The photo attached shows a vehicle that is believed to be a black Jeep Grand Cherokee and a male in red pants.
BPD is hoping to identify the male in red pants and the driver of the black Jeep to gather witness statements. Both of these good samaritans attempted to stop the carjacking and we are requesting that they contact Detective Gonzales at 720-685-7305.
Leading up to this, Brighton Police Officers were on routine patrol in the 100 block of East Bromley Lane. Officers noticed a vehicle that is believed to be driven by 30-year-old Isaiah Twito, who was wanted on multiple felony warrants and has eluded officers several times in the past. Twito ran away from officers when they attempted to contact him and a foot pursuit began.
While establishing a perimeter, officers were informed that a carjacking had just occurred at 55 W. Bromley Ln. Video footage from the business at this location shows the male in red pants trying to stop Twito and what is believed to be a black Jeep Grand Cherokee trying to follow the stolen vehicle.
Later that night, after the carjacking, officers located the stolen vehicle in the 700 block of Mockingbird Street. Officers attempted to contact Twito in an apartment nearby where he is known to stay. Twito initially barricaded himself inside the apartment for several hours. Around 3:30 a.m. on Oct. 10, he surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody without further incident.
Under Colorado laws, the arrest and filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual committed a crime. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
If you know the two witnesses pictured here, please contact Brighton Police Department at 720-685-7305. Their witness statements will be helpful while gathering evidence for this case.
