ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Three of the suspects robbed a man of his wallet then ran into a nearby apartment.
An overnight SWAT standoff ended peacefully this morning when officers took into custody eight people, three of whom they believed just committed a robbery.
According to police, shortly before midnight officers responded to Pennsylvania and Central after a man called 911 reporting that three males assaulted him and took his wallet. The man told police that the bandits ran into an apartment in the 7600 block of Chico NE. When officers approached the apartment, a man opened the door then quickly shut it on the officers, police said.
After a short standoff with police, eight men walked out of the apartment and surrendered. The victim identified one of the three offenders who allegedly assaulted and robbed him. Police intend to charge one of the offenders with multiple felonies. The victim suffered minor injuries.
