A Phoenix woman was arrested after police said she and another man committed two armed robberies at different apartments nine days apart.

Lucy Romero, 26, was booked into jail on charges of armed robbery with a deadly weapon and  kidnapping.

A court document states that on March 4, Romero and a male accomplice forced their way into an apartment at 4530 N. 23rd St. and while there, the man held three victims at gunpoint while Romero stole personal belongings.

The woman's sister, Lucerito Romero, already in custody, admitted involvement, court paperwork said.

On Thursday, Lucero and the same male suspect broke into another apartment at 2409 W. Campbell Ave, according to a probable cause statement.

While in the apartment, Lucero and the other suspects held the victim at gunpoint while grabbing some of the victim's personal belongings.
