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.

    It is just stupid to invite a complete stranger over to your house that you met online. How stupid can some people seriously be? At least make sure that person is doable without that paper bag over their face. Wow. I love the make my day law and am a strong believer in using it. I have no problem making someone think twice or instantly regret messing with me. Idiots. Word to the wise, people you meet on line or in bars are just bad news and are there for a reason. Fun to talk and BS with but thats as far as it should go. Once again, idiots.

    My onion on the pinwheel is this: why must we act as if nothing happens to nobody, yet everybody? If we continue to dip into the bread basket and by bread basket of course I mean keyboard, we will surely catch a dog-like-cat in the process and we all know that dog-like-cats live in a dog-eat-dirt world, so we dont want to carry that burden with our feet. Mr. Greenwall is up to no-good again with all of his cat-like-dog friends. Pratharius is one of these incomprehensible accomplices with nothing but a blocked up sewage system. STOP!! Why oh why are they doing this to us all? We have done nothing to not do everything for them. GO!! Remember; do not ask either of these procrasterbating molish-like-jackalls to complete the sentance, all they will say is probly, probly not.

    This was a very poor choice by the victim. Long ago, back in the mid-90's, I used to invite lots of women to my apartment in California. I would always invite them to come alone. Anytime they showed up at the door with a male friend, I would not even open the door. However, if they showed up with a female friend who was at least average looking, come on in!
