Robbery suspects give up after police stand-off

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- SWAT quickly moved into the Foothills Village Apartments near 7th Avenue and Alta Vista Sunday morning, surrounding an apartment believed to be full of several armed robbery suspects.

After several hours in the hot summer sun, three people emerged from the home and were taken into custody.

Phoenix Police said a female employee at a nearby Circle-K was robbed at gunpoint by a group of people.

Police said the suspects only took the woman's personal belongings and nothing from the store. Nobody was hurt in all of this.

Officers were able to track the suspects down to the Foothills Village Apartments apartments where the stand-off began.

Police are still working on identifying the suspects.
