Knockout game-style attacks: Did Denver police take too long to make them public?

Earlier this week, we told you about three New Year's assaults in downtown that bear strong resemblances to the "knockout game" -- sucker punches intended to render random strangers unconscious.

Now, the Denver Police Department is facing criticism for taking the better part of a week to let the public know about the incidents mere months after apologizing for a delay in sharing info about a beating at a light-rail station. This time, though, DPD chief Robert White isn't saying anything was done wrong.
