OKLAHOMA CITY (CBS SF) — Two armed men who committed a crime back in 2011 walked away from the scene unnoticed — until now. After a recent online search, the victim just discovered those suspects were caught on Google Street View on the day of the robbery.

The woman, too scared to reveal her identity, told KOFR she came home three years ago to find her home ransacked. That’s when two armed men held her at gunpoint for over an hour before letting her go free.

There were a lot of clues left behind, but police were unable to track down any suspects. Now their luck may be changing.

A friend of the victim was recently looking at her street on Google maps when she saw two men matching the description of the alleged robbers.

“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,” the victim told KOVR. “Those are the guys that robbed me and she said I know they’re on Google maps!”

Their faces were blurred by Google, but their yellow and blue shirts stood out as they walked right in front of her house. The photo was also taken the same month she was robbed.

She’s hopeful someone will see the Google image, spot the suspects and call the Oklahoma City police so belated justice can be served.
