SPOKANE, Wash. - Two suspects involved in a stand-off with the Spokane SWAT team over the weekend are expected in court Monday to face robbery and burglary charges.

The stand-off early Sunday morning stemmed from a home-invasion in the 1100 block of E. Nora.

Tyler Sohner, who lives in the home along with several roommates, returned to the house around 2 a.m. to find a man, who was not one of his roommates, inside.

Sohner confronted the man who he says was going through his things.

"I started asking him exactly what he was doing and he just started screaming at me basically... told me he was going to shoot me in the head," said Sohner. "He kept reaching toward the back of his pants like he had a gun."

The man then left the home and took with him Sohner's phone and ID, promising to return, which he did about five minutes later.

Sohner had already locked himself in his roommate's room when the robber returned. Sohner says the man climbed into the house through a window and proceeded to steal 300 DVDs and food before leaving for a second time. 

Based on a description Sohner gave to police, officers were able to track the robber to an apartment he rents in the 900 block of E. Ermina.

It was at this apartment where the stand-off took place for several hours early Sunday.

The stand-off came to end after police shot pepper spray into the apartment.

"They called the SWAT team and the SWAT team showed up and I heard 'pop, pop, pop, pop,'" said Carol Dunn who witnessed the stand-off. "That's when they broke the window and shot some tear gas in there."

Both 24-year-old Cody Wolk and 24-year-old Peta N. Shimanski were taken into custody without further incident. 

Each was booked into the Spokane County jail on charges of 1st Degree Robbery and 1st Degree Burglary. Police are continuing to investigate the incident and more charges may be pending.
