A woman in Washington was arrested in May for allegedly robbing a man after asking him for help. The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Siara Carrazco of Ferndale, met the victim at a gas station and asked him if he could pay for some items, which the latter agreed to. When the good Samaritan returned with the items she had asked for, Carrazco brandished a gun and ordered him to give his cellphone and money.
