OXFORD, Ohio — Residents at ParkView Arms Apartments in Oxford were encouraged to shelter in place due to a SWAT situation, police said Tuesday.

Oxford Police Lt. Lara Fening said officers responded to an armed robbery at around 9 p.m. at 5032 College Corner Pike. When a suspect barricaded themselves, the Butler County Regional SWAT team was called to the scene.

Just before 1 a.m. Tuesday morning the stand-off ended peacefully with two people arrested, Oxford police said.

The resident whose apartment is the focus of the investigation was able to get out safely.

Police put out a Nixle alert at around 10 p.m. encouraging people to avoid the area, shelter in place in the complex or leave if directed by officers.
