A SWAT situation in Glendale closed 47th Avenue near Northern Sunday morning. The situation started with an armed burglary in the neighborhood. 

According to police, a homeowner on Hayward Avenue, which is just south of Northern Avenue, saw two men in his home around 6:30 a.m. He reportedly saw them take several of his guns. 

They were seen running away and jumping fences.

Glendale PD and SWAT officers searched for suspects in the neighborhood.

Officials asked residents to stay inside their homes unless they saw uniformed SWAT officers outside asking to check their house to ensure the suspects weren't hiding on properties.

Drivers were also asked to avoid the area. Officials only had a vague description of the suspects and they are still at large.
