Another man, 25-year-old Michael Guzman was arrested by CCPD, and charged with Burglary with Intent to Commit another Felony, Possession of Marijuana, Outstanding Warrant, Failure to Identify as a Fugitive, Giving False ID and Evading Arrest.

CCPD says the robbers physically assaulted several apartment residents before officers arrived.

A firearm was recovered at the scene.
