POLICE SEEK INFORMATION ABOUT A ROBBERY
A 65-year-old woman pulls up to an ATM machine at an eastside bank and is robbed at gunpoint by an unknown man,
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Thursday, January 26th, 2012, about 10:15 P.M., the elderly victim pulled into a handicap parking space at the Bank of America, 1330 N. Lee Trevino, and got out of her vehicle to use the ATM near Rojas Street. While she withdrew money, a man came up behind her demanding that she give him her money. When she turned, she saw that the man held a black handgun in his right hand. She gave him the money she had just withdrawn. He tried to get more money from the ATM but ended up jamming it so it wouldn’t work.
The suspect fled on foot around the corner of the building, and then a red pickup drove slowly through the parking lot. It is not known if the suspect got into that truck, or if perhaps the truck’s driver could have seen the suspect. The suspect is described as an Hispanic man between the ages of 16 and 18, short height, thin build, wearing a black hoodie and dark pants.
