Woman robbed at drive-thru ATM

(WMC-TV) - A recent robbery at a Raleigh ATM was caught on multiple cameras.

Police said a male suspect struck a woman's hand after she withdrew cash from a drive-thru ATM last week at the First Tennessee Bank branch on Yale Road near Ramill.

"I live in Raleigh," said customer Janice Halsey.  "It just gives you a creepy feeling," she added.

She said she never comes to the ATM at night.  However, she has also felt afraid during the day.

"It's kind of secluded," said Halsey.  "There's nothing on that side to protect you."

Police believe the suspect probably watched his victim pull up to the ATM then waited until he saw her cash come out.

The Lexington Apartments are located behind the bank.  That is where police said the suspect ran after the robbery.

"I hate to hear about that," said customer Phyllis Moss.  "It's really sad."

A long line of customers at the ATM Wednesday shared concerns in addition to their choice of bank.

"Normally, it's pretty safe," said Moss.  "But I'm always cautious about going to any ATM."

"I go to the department stores or drug stores that allow you to get cash back from your debit card," said Halsey.

The woman who was robbed told Action News 5 the crime left her extremely shaken and unsure about whether she will ever use an ATM again.

Call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH with any information on the ATM robbery.
