SEATTLE -- On Oct. 13, a woman was walking home in Capitol Hill when she was robbed and threatened with her life. Two weeks later, one of the three suspects in the robbery turned herself in to King County Jail, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to the police report for the incident, the victim was walking near Bellevue Avenue East and East Olive Way around 7:45 p.m. when a woman grabbed both her arms and dragged her 15 feet to two waiting accomplices.

The victim later told officers the trio took her cellphone and wallet, forced her to give them her PIN, and threatened to come to her house and shoot her if she said anything.

A stranger saw the victim crying following the robbery and walked her home.

Later, the three suspects in the robbery used the victim's credit card at a gas station and were caught on surveillance camera, according to the report.

According to police, a 31-year-old woman showed up at the King County Jail around 9:30 p.m. Oct. 28 saying she had been featured on Washington's Most Wanted and wished to turn herself in.

Robbery detectives interviewed the woman and discovered she had been involved in the Oct. 13 robbery, according to police.

The woman was booked into King County Jail for investigation of robbery, and police are continuing to look for the remaining two suspects.
