PUEBLO, Colorado — Police officers in Pueblo arrested a man believed to have tried to carjack several people on Friday.

Damian Madden, 28, is being held in Pueblo County Jail on multiple charges, including two counts of attempted robbery, one count of attempted assault, and two counts of possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

Investigators believe Madden twice attempted to steal the car by pointing a gun at the victim and asking for the keys.

The first carjacking attempt occurred in the 800 block of East 4th Street just before 7am. He reported hearing a “pop” as the victim fled his Madden.

The victim was not injured. However, officers later recovered a used .22 caliber shell at the scene.

The second attempt was made at about 10:30 am on Block 500 of Locust Street near Lake Runyon. Officers say Madden asked the victim for help.

After giving him water and money, they say Madden fired a pistol in the air and demanded their keys.

“Police have arrived at the scene with another citizen detaining the suspect in a toilet structure on the lake,” the department wrote in a social media post about the incident.

Madden was still armed with a handgun when officers tried to arrest him.

Officers established a perimeter around Madden and used low-lethal tools to detain him.

Madden also has outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court for traffic-related crimes and for being charged with second-degree robbery.
