A robbery victim recognized the driver of a getaway car and police later arrested the woman after a Sunday night robbery in Shawnee.

Police said one of the victims and a friend came to the Oasis Court Apartments at West 68th Street and Nieman Road after attending a party.

The driver pulled into a parking space and another car quickly pulled in behind them, according to a Shawnee Police news release.

Two men with handguns robbed the pair and got back into their car.

One of the victims recognized the woman driving the getaway car.

Police tracked down the suspect at a Lenexa apartment complex.

The suspect was a 24-year-old Shawnee woman and could face charges later Monday.

The two gunmen are on the run.
