A Craigslist listing gone wrong has landed a Tulsa woman behind bars on a robbery charge.

According to a booking report, the victims were responding to a Craigslist ad regarding an iPhone for sale in the parking lot of the Mingo Manor Apartments near 51st & Mingo around 11:30 a.m. on August 1st.

Two suspects came and sat in the backseat of the victim's vehicle and told them they had a gun, and to give them all of their property.

A male suspect began to assault one of the victims, actually biting them in the arm, police said, while the female suspect heald another victim by the hair.

The suspects stole purses, money and cell phones from the victims and got away.

After two weeks of investigating, police zeroed in on Lakeisha Johnson, 21, as the female suspect.

Johnson was arrested Wednesday morning on a robbery with a dangerous weapon charge and booked into the Tulsa Co. Jail on a $50,000 bond.
