    She said she was first taken to a home in the 1200 block of South Mariposa Street where she and another woman, also being held against her will, were forced to strip down to their underwear and then bound with duct tape.

    One victim reported Barroso pistol-whipped her and then fired a shot in the floor, threatening to kill her and the other woman.

    The pair said they were later taken to a garage behind a home in the 500 block of South Eliot Street between West Virginia Avenue and West Center Avenue.

    According to arrest records, Valdez kidnapped two more women at gunpoint and brought them to the garage.

    I wonder if any of the four women had been reported missing? How fortunate that one woman was released by the perps so that she could tell LE about the other women. It sounds like such a horrific experience for them.

    Good morning, MamaJoJo. I guess I have to read on, because I'm still not getting a clear picture of the time frame in which all of this occurred.

    I believe the first victim was the one kidnapped last Thursday from the Breakfast King. Then the other three were abducted. On Friday one was released, and alerted LE.

    ETA: Looks like the woman abducted at the Breakfast King was the second victim.

    [..]
    A woman told Denver Police Department investigators that two men forced her into a car at gunpoint early Aug. 13, according to court documents. She had taken a cab to the Breakfast King restaurant at Santa Fe Drive and West Mississippi Avenue.
    She was driven to a home on South Mariposa Street, where another victim was being held hostage by two other men.

    [...]
    Later that afternoon, the two women were moved to a garage behind a home on South Eliot Street and held captive.

    When evening fell, one of the men kidnapped two more women at gunpoint near Mississippi Avenue and Irving Street.

    Just wow. This story is just crazy. I'm just surprised that a rape charge is nowhere mentioned.

    I am sure the other charges will be added when they have more time to get their paperwork straight.

    I am so sorry this has happened to you all. I hope that you have been able to find strength and healing. What is taking so long to have the trials?
