Oklahoma City, Okla. (CBS HOUSTON) – Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two armed thieves who allegedly ransacked a woman’s home in 2011. They got away with the crime at the time, but were just spotted outside the home in images courtesy of Google Street View.

The two alleged robbers were inadvertently captured in Google Street View images casually walking down the street prior to the July 2011 armed intrusion into a woman’s Oklahoma City home, KFOR-TV reports. The woman, who is still shaken by the incident and asked to remain anonymous, says she walked into her ransacked home and the two alleged criminals held her at gunpoint for over an hour.

“And then they pulled a gun and held me for over an hour, she told KFOR. “There were times that I thought they would shoot me before they left…I was lucky they didn’t hurt me. I was very lucky that day.”

Three years later, this month, a friend of the woman’s was looking at her street on Google maps and found two men who fit the description of the suspects.

“The very next thing she texted me was a picture and it was a picture of the guys that robbed me standing in front of my house. Those are the guys that robbed me and she said I know they’re on Google maps!”

Although their faces were blurred by Google, the blue and yellow-clad pair are seen walking directly in front of the victim’s home near the same time of the 2011 crime. “Truly they’re just two kids walking down the street,” the woman told KFOR.

At the time of the crime, the woman says that one of the criminals actually told her that he though his bad “karma” would one day catch up to him.

“He actually sat at my dining room table and said ‘I think my karma is going to catch up with me’ and I just looked at him like yeah.”

The victim and Oklahoma City police urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
