An armed-robbery suspect is behind bars following a police stand-off in south Wichita.  

Police were doing follow-up on leads from three recent armed-robberies in the area.  The officers found their suspect hold up in a house on south Topeka.  The stand-off affected traffic at Broadway and Orme, south of Kellogg.   

The S.W.A.T. team was called in around 5:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, who talked the suspect out after a few hours.

Investigators said the suspect, 38, had just been released from prison, about a week ago.
