The suspect in an armed robbery and standoff is still on the loose, but police say they've narrowed down their search. An arrest warrant has been issued for Jeremy Dyer.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office says they responded to 49 Watson Blvd, in Security Sunday night on reports of an armed robbery. The victim told authorities that he'd met a woman, on a chat group and invited her to his house. When she arrived, she was accompanied by a white male and a Hispanic male. The victim invited them into the home and that's when he says the white male, who police say has been identified as Jeremy Dyer, pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the victim. Police say the victim gave Dyer $20 then ran into a bedroom. That's when the suspects left the area.

Investigators with the Colorado Springs Police Department and the El Paso County Sheriff's Office then surrounded a home on the 1500 block of Fountain Street through the night Sunday and into the morning Monday. When they entered the home on Monday morning, no one was inside.

Authorities arrested Leeann Arroyo, 30, a short time later at a home on Fountain where their investigation led them. Inspector John San Agustin with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says Jeremy Dyer and the other suspect involved in the armed robbery are still out there.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 29-year-old Jeremy Paul Dyer. A warrant has been issued for Dyer for Aggravated Robbery and Conspiracy, with a bond amount of $25,000.

The second male suspect is described as a Hispanic male wearing a long sleeve unknown color hoodie and gloves.
