A Charleston woman has been charged with first-degree robbery after police said she allegedly directed two other suspects to rob and attack a woman.
Angela Ardel Newhouse, 46, allegedly directed two people on Monday to attack Robbye Olive at 100 Wyoming St. and take her property, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court. Police said the suspects who allegedly were directed by Newhouse then beat Olive. After the incident, she had a knot on her forehead and her chest and face were red.
Police said the two suspects who allegedly were ordered to attack and rob Olive were later found with the victim’s digital camera and cell phone, and they had filmed and taken pictures of themselves with the victim’s digital camera. It is unclear whether those two suspects have been charged.
Police also said that after the incident, Newhouse, a former neighbor of the victim, allegedly called and threatened to kill Olive if she showed up for court. Olive told police she had a protective order against Newhouse, and police signed a complaint for intimidation of a witness and telephone harassment for the alleged threat.
