    A man and woman wanted in the robbery of an ice cream and coffee shop surrendered peacefully Monday after more than five hours in a standoff with police in Sherman Heights.

    Around 7 p.m. Sunday, police said a man with a gun robbed Korky’s Ice Cream and Coffee in the 2300-block of San Diego Avenue in Old Town. It's unclear how much money he stole.

    Witnesses told police the suspect hopped into the passenger seat of a car, possibly an Infiniti, being driven by a woman.

    Later Sunday night, police located the supposed getaway car in the 2000-block of K Street in Sherman Heights. Officials said police laid spike strips behind the car in case the suspect tried to escape.

    The man, who was holed up inside a home on K Street, surrendered peacefully around 12:45 a.m. Monday. This is video of the street where the standoff took place.

    Police blocked off several streets in the area of 22nd Street and K Street, near Sherman Elementary School. There were many homes inside the police perimeter. Officers seem to be focusing on an alleyway off K Street.

    Around 12:45 a.m., the man surrendered to police. Officials say the woman wanted in the crime surrendered approximately two hours later.
