A Bronx woman was arrested for her alleged involvement in an assault of a woman who was found dead days after the attack.

According to police, at 10:36 p.m. on Feb. 11, police responded to a call regarding an assault in progress at a Bank of America located in the vicinity of Pelham Parkway and White Plains Road. Upon their arrival, officers found 43-year-old Tamara Sinclair, who was suffering pain to her leg and ankle.

Sinclair told police that three unknown individuals got into an argument with her before assaulting her and throwing her to the ground. A spokesperson from the NYPD stated that the suspects also took Sinclair’s credit card before fleeing.

EMS treated and released Sinclair at the scene. However, Sinclair would take a turn for the worst over a week later.

At 5:52 a.m. on Feb. 21, Sinclair was found unconscious and unresponsive in her Bronx home after complaining of chest pains. EMS rushed to the home and declared Sinclair dead at the scene.

Following an ongoing investigation, the NYPD arrested 21-year-old Reign Harney in connection to the assault and Sinclair’s death. She was charged with murder and robbery.

The investigation is ongoing.
