THE BRONX — A Bronx woman was arrested Thursday in the deadly attack of a woman at an ATM in Allerton, police said Friday.

Authorities said Reign Harney, 21, was arrested and faces murder and robbery charges.

Tamara Sinclair died 10 days after she was attacked at an ATM in the Bronx, police said.

Sinclair, 43, was at a Bank of America location near the corner of Pelham Parkway and White Plains Road when she was beaten on Feb. 11, officials said. She'd argued with the attackers before the assault. They threw her to the ground.

"She ended up breaking her ankle," NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said. "She had a blood clot and died from her injuries."

Her body was found in her home on Friday.

"Really just a tragic case, very sad," NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said.

The NYPD is looking into the initial response from patrol officers. Sinclair had gone to a police precinct to report the attack.

Police asked for help identifying the attackers, previosuly releasing images of three suspects.

Thursday's arrest implies two suspects remain at large.
