Man with knife robs woman at ATM


GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Police hope surveillance images will help identify a man who robbed a woman at a drive through ATM at knife point.

The man approached a woman in her car around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, while she was using an ATM at the Fifth Third Bank branch at 805 Leonard St. NW.

Police say the man used a large hunting knife and demanded money, which the victim refused. But she had already entered her PIN number into the machine.

The man withdrew $60 and tried to get into the car, but was unable because the doors were locked. The man then ran north on Alpine Avenue NW with another person.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 5'6'' tall and 140-145 lbs. He was wearing gloves, black pants and a black sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head.

The victim says the man spoke with a Spanish accent.
