Two women are behind bars after police say they assaulted a woman and stole her vehicle in south Omaha Friday night
Omaha Police were called to 18th and O Street around 9:15 Friday night to investigate a carjacking.
Police say 37 year old Victoria Irambona told them she had just dropped off a friend at the Southside Projects when she was approached by two women who asked for a ride. Irambona drove them to the area of 18th & O where the suspects had her pull into a driveway.
She told police both women then began punching her in the head and face. Irambona says they stole money from her purse, kicked her out of her Jeep Liberty and fled the area.
Gang Unit Officers were in the area and located the car traveling on 13th Street. The vehicle pulled into a dead-end where they initiated a stop. Police say the vehicle made a quick turn and tried to flee, but lost control in the snow and ice and got stuck in a ditch.
After a short foot pursuit both suspects were taken into custody.
