EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Evansville Police say three people were taken into custody following an overnight standoff.

Sgt. Jason Cullum tells 14 News police were investigating a home invasion robbery on the city's east side and received information about the location of the suspects. 

That led to a standoff with the SWAT team at 1010 Weinbach Avenue.

Police tell us the three people who were eventually taken into custody are Rashad Thompson, Pierre Roberts and Donyel Gilbert.

They are all charged with resisting law enforcement.

Police wanted to speak with the men in connection with a robbery at 1303 Dresden that happened on Wednesday.

They say the victim wasn't able to provide police with enough information to charge the three with the robbery.

That investigation is ongoing.
