SALISBURY — Police are working this morning to get video footage from a Salisbury bank’s ATM after authorities said a woman was robbed Thursday night.
Salisbury Police said a 49-year-old Salisbury woman was threatened by a man claiming to have a gun and forced to withdraw $60 from a Wells Fargo ATM at 130 S. Main St. about 9 p.m.
The woman was depositing a check when the man, wearing a white pullover hoodie, jeans or jean shorts and a blue doo-rag, approached her and asked if the cash machine took Bank of America cards.
When she turned around, a police report said, the man told her he had a gun and told her he wanted money.
Officers said she replied that she had none and then the man told her to get it out of the ATM. After taking $60 out, she got into her car and the man said he wanted her cell phone.
She told the robber she didn’t have one and drove away.
The man was described as a slim black male wearing a white hoodie with a red stripe and gold design with a zipper along the neckline.
Salisbury Police detectives are investigating.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Salisbury Police at 704-633-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
Contact reporter Nathan Hardin at 704-797-4246.
