GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

One man was in custody and two suspects were on the loose after a SWAT operation in Glendale on Wednesday night.

Police say a man put his Xbox up for sale online and went to meet the potential buyers at an apartment near 43rd and Peoria avenues.

Three men held him at gunpoint and robbed him, said Glendale police Sgt. Brent Coombs.

The victim escaped, called police and the SWAT team was also called.

Police took one of the men in custody after a brief barricade situation, Coombs said.

Coombs said police didn't have any information on the other suspects.

The victim was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure.
