An eight-month pregnant woman pleaded guilty to charges of abduction and aggravated robbery after she admitted to pulling a gun on a woman who thought she was helping look for a missing child.

Natalie Law, 30, showed up in the 5900 block of Old Troy Pike in July and asked Carol Peters to help find her missing 5-year-old son. Law told Peters she was in the neighborhood for a cookout and her son disappeared on his bicycle.

The pregnant Law faked a call to police asking for help finding the child before Peters offered to drive Law back to a friend's apartment. Then, Law told Peters was that she had a gun and was robbing her.

"About that time (Law) said to me, 'Ma'am, I know you've been so nice to me, and I shouldn't do this, but I'm here to rob you,'" Peters said. "'I want you to take me to an ATM machine. I have a gun.'"

Peters pulled the car into a gas station parking lot and screamed for help. Law sprinted from the scene, and police arrested her in a nearby wooded area, crawling on the ground.

Law's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 13.
