(KSL News) A terrified woman ran into a police substation in Provo to say robbers were holding her husband at gunpoint.

The woman said one robber had pistol-whipped her husband inside their apartment near 750 S. 650 West. One of the men tried to run when police arrived, but officers arrested him.

Police say the substation made the difference.

Sgt. Bud Walker/Provo Police Dept.: "This is a success story where the victims have actually come to the officer who was only 100 feet away. We were able to capture a fairly violent person who's on parole out of another state."

Michael Schwabland is on parole in Washington state, and was booked in Provo for aggravated assault and resisting arrest.

Police also arrested the second man.
