Oklahoma City police have arrested one of two suspects who are accused of kidnapping and robbing a woman at gunpoint Monday afternoon.

According to police, officers responded to the incident at an apartment in the 2600 block of N. Kelley. The victim told police that she goes around helping families in need, and she came to the apartment after getting a phone call from a man saying he needed help.

The victim said a man met her outside and walked her to the apartment. Once inside, a woman, later identified as 22-year-old Jaysha Jones, jumped out from behind the door with a rifle.

Jones reportedly put the rifle in the victim's mouth and demanded money from her.

According to police, the two then took the victim's purse and asked for more money. When the victim told them she didn't have any more, Jones reportedly said "if I go down to your vehicle and I find some more money, I'm gonna kill you."

The suspects found more money in the victim's car. Police said the male suspect showed the victim two identification cards, and claimed that he had killed two people and placed their bodies in a trash bag. The man then told the victim that she would be next.

The male suspect reportedly jumped from a second floor window before officers arrived.

Officers were able to take Jones into custody. She has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on charges of robbery by firearm and kidnapping.

The victim was not injured during the incident.
