POMPANO BEACH (CBSMiami) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office has released frightening surveillance video of a woman robbed at gunpoint at an ATM.
It happened outside the Wells Fargo bank, located at 3885 N. Federal Highway in Pompano Beach at 10:15 p.m. on July 30th.
The woman had just finished up a transaction at the ATM when she heard a car pull into the parking lot and park nose to nose in front of her car, which blocked her in.
“He ran up to me and put the gun to my neck and held it there the whole time,” says the woman, who asked CBS4 ‘not’ to use her name.
“He told me give me the money,” the woman said. “I didn’t know what he was gonna end up doing and the fear of not knowing what was next, just trying to think ahead how would I would react to what happens.”
The suspect, wearing a leather jacket, grabbed the money.
“He said, ‘Now give me your keys,’” the victim stated. “I was thinking he wanted my car, but he left. He just didn’t want me to follow him.”
The assailant sped away in an older-model, red Chevrolet sedan with dark tinted windows. He got away with about $160.
“We are concerned about his aggressive demeanor,” said BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion. “He was armed and willing to use it. We want to get him off the streets as soon as possible.
The robber is described as a black male with short hair. He measures about 5’11” in height, weighs approximately 180 lbs. and was last seen wearing dark color shirt and shorts, a stocking over his face and beige gloves.
The victim told CBS4′s Joan Murray she’ll never forget the voice of the armed robber.
“I would recognize his voice,” the victim said. “I’ll never forget the voice. It was eerie. And the feeling of the gun on my neck, that’s never going away. It has changed my way of thinking. I’ve always thought of myself as cautious. I’m checking over my shoulder.
