SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Donna Pritchett was getting to take her dog, Zoey, for a walk, just as she does most mornings in a quiet Scottsdale neighborhood near Mountain View and Hayden roads.

What she saw when she walked outside Monday morning was something she had never seen before.

Scottsdale police officers with guns drawn and police dogs had positioned themselves in front of an apartment in a complex near a gas station that had been robbed about 2 a.m. Monday.

Police said they believed two men suspected of robbing a nearby gas station were inside one of the apartments.

One suspect was taken into custody soon after the robbery, but the second suspect didn't come out until after a lengthy standoff with officers that ended about 5:30 a.m., some 3 1/2 hours after the robbery.

"I was going to walk my dog and saw a SWAT team and police. I wasn't sure what was happening, " Pritchett said. "I saw one man come out backwards with his hands in the air, then I thought, 'This is serious.'"

Pritchett said she didn't know the suspects, but that such a happening was extremely rare. "This is such a quiet neighborhood," she said.

The robbery happened about 2 a.m., a police spokesman said.

The identities of the suspects were not released
