2 women in custody after Denver robbery

One of the women barricaded herself inside a home on South Newton Street for several hours, Denver Police said.

DENVER — Two female robbery suspects are in custody after at least one of them entered a home Friday morning and refused to come out, according to a spokesperson for the Denver Police Department (DPD).

Officers initially responded to a robbery in progress at a residence around 3:30 a.m. in the 4400 block of South Newton Street. That's in southwest Denver near West Quincy Avenue and South Lowell Boulevard.

When officers arrived they found a male resident of the home outside along with two women were suspects.

One woman was taken into custody, according to DPD, but the other went inside the home and refused to come out for several hours.

Around 7 a.m. officers went into the home and took the second woman into custody. Charges are pending.

DPD said they're looking into whether one of the suspects knew the resident of the home.
