SHERWOOD, Ore. Police backed off from a standoff at a Sherwood auto center Friday evening.

Officers were trying to catch a wanted man and woman when suddenly they packed up and left.

It all unfolded at the Improved Auto Center in the 14000 block of Tualatin Sherwood Road. A spokesperson with the Sherwood Police Department said it wasn't worth anyone getting hurt. He said they'll catch these two sometime down the road.

Police raced to the business around 5 p.m. after learning that the man and the woman, who both have warrants out for their arrest, were inside.

Heavily-armed officers surrounded the business and nearby businesses had to be evacuated.

It's was believed the wanted subjects were inside, but authorities said they didn't want anyone to get hurt, so they backed off and will try another day.
