Authorities have accused a local woman of using a stolen car to rob two people.

Wanda Levi, 41, was charged April 2 with second-degree robbery and operating a vehicle without consent.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Levi stayed the night with a woman. The woman reported her red Nissan Rogue was stolen from her residence the night Levi stayed over.

The woman said Levi had borrowed the vehicle in the past, but she had always asked.

According to a Coralville police complaint, Levi pulled up to two people, opened the car door, and told the people, “Give me all you have” while holding her hand out like a weapon.

Levi reached into both coat pockets of the victims, but one victim grabbed both of Levi’s wrists. Levi got away with $30 in cash, the complaint said.

Operating a vehicle without consent is an aggravated misdemeanor. Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony.
