DENVER - Denver Police told the 9Wants to Know investigators they have identified all of the people detectives believe were involved in a beating at the light rail station at 30th Avenue and Downing Street.

All but one of the people have been arrested, a police spokeswoman told 9NEWS Friday.

The beating happened in mid-September and was captured on surveillance video.

The video shows several young men attacking and beating a 23-year-old victim. A Denver Police spokesman said the man was not seriously injured. The victim was taken to the hospital.

Police nabbed an adult and three juveniles. Detectives are looking for another juvenile.

Police arrested Daishawn Matthews, 18, the night of the incident and charged him with robbery. The victim claims he had $600 taken from his wallet that night. He has bonded out.

A female juvenile, who police say was involved in the incident, turned herself in Thursday night, according to a police spokeswoman.

Another juvenile was taken into custody Oct. 8 for at least one probation violation and later a warrant was issued in connection to the beating.

A third juvenile is in custody on an unrelated charge and a warrant in Denver has been issued.
