TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police SWAT is clearing the scene at the Monaco condominium complex near Pima and Wilmot. 

According to TPD the second robbery suspect has not been located.  Officials are saying the suspect was not in the condo he was reportedly seen running in to, but TPD now has a better description of this suspect and will continue their search. 

The early morning SWAT situation happened after a tip on a second robbery suspect was received by Tucson Police, stating the man was spotted in the complex and seen running into one of the condos.

According to TPD it all began last night after two people were robbed while walking their dog near 5th and Rosemont.  The victims were able to give a description of the suspects and the vehicle they were driving.  These tips led to the arrest of one suspect, but the second was able to get away, according to TPD. 

Some residents were allowed into their homes, but others are still waiting for the ok that they can go home as well.

There are currently no traffic restrictions in the area, but drivers are advised to use caution when driving in the area.
