A woman who police say used Craigslist to steal from shoppers is now in jail.
Tulsa police robbery detectives arrested Lakeisha Johnson, 21, for robbery with a firearm connected to a holdup in a South Tulsa apartment complex.
Johnson is accused of pointing a gun at two young women from out of town who met her to buy an iPhone 5 they saw on Craigslist.
The Craigslist ad was from Owasso but the victims say they were supposed to meet at the QuikTrip at 51st Street South Mingo Road.
The women are young but they are not naïve.
"I actually had a pocketknife and she hid our wallets," said the passenger.
One of the suspects hasn't been arrested, so both women fear they could be targeted again so they did not want to reveal their identity.
"I got to QT and they made up some lie and said their wife took the car and we needed to meet them at the apartment complex," said the driver.
The women were uneasy so they called a friend and kept him on the phone.
"Once we got to the back of the apartment complex is when we were like this isn't right so I kind of started pulling away," said the driver.
Then they said a woman who was later identified as Johnson and another man approached their car.
"When she got in the car she was really nice," said the passenger.
The man and woman were in the backseat of the victim’s car who said Johnson threatened them with a gun.
"I didn't know what to do, I was speechless," said the driver.
The passenger said the man yelled at her to get off the phone and grabbed her shoulders.
"He just had his arms around me, head bunting me and biting me," said the passenger.
She showed FOX23 News the picture of the bite mark.
The driver says she tried to help, but the man reached over and grabbed her hair.
"I was like stuck in the back of my seat," said the driver.
The bandits then took off with the victim’s keys and purses but not without being noticed by witnesses who recorded the tag number of a 2003 maroon Mercury Sable. Police say there were then led to Johnson.
"It's a situation you don't expect yourself to be in. It happened so quickly you really don't know what to do. You think of all of the things that could have changed, turn around not go,” said the driver.
The women are telling their story to warn others to be careful when meeting a stranger.
"I'm just ready for it be over, just because your family and friends buy things from Craigslist doesn't mean that all the people are good people on there," said the driver.
Detectives tell FOX23 News they are working to issue a search warrant for the accomplice in the case.
Johnson faces robbery with a firearm and is being held on $50,000 bond.
