Updated April 8, 2024 - 1:57 pm

Two suspects were arrested last month in connection with a 2021 “follow-home” robbery in Boulder City that resulted in injuries and eventually the death of a woman.

In October 2021, a Boulder City woman was robbed of her purse and fell to the ground, suffering severe head injuries, according to police.

The victim died from her injuries in December 2021. The Clark County coroner’s office later ruled the death a homicide.

Boulder City detectives served numerous search warrants that eventually led to the identification of two suspects, Amoni Zhane Ponnell-Fountain, andAngelina Marie Crawford

both residents of Antioch, California.

Open murder warrants for both suspects were obtained in February. Crawford was arrested March 18 by the Portland Police Bureau in Portland, Oregon. She is being held in the Multnomah County Detention Center in Portland on the murder warrant and is awaiting extradition.

Ponnell-Fountain was arrested March 19 in Contra Costa County, California, by a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force and was extradited to Las Vegas on March 30. She is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.

Boulder City police did not provide the name of the victim.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information may contact the Boulder City Police Department at 702-293-9224 or Crime Stoppers of Nevada at 702-385-5555.
