Robbed At An ATM

WBOC reports that a man was robbed at the Wilmington Trust ATM on Friday evening, January 4th at 7:10.

This is from WBOC’s report:

Officers learned from the victim that while at the ATM machine a male suspect walked up to the victim and demanded money. When the victim refused, the suspect punched the victim in the face. The suspect was able to get an undisclosed amount of money from the victim.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male, approximately 18 to [20] years of age, approximately 5-foot-10, between 150 and 180 pounds, clean shaven and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black long-sleeve button-up shirt and possibly a black hat or do rag.

It’s distressing to hear stuff like this. I often wondered if any of the ATMs in town would be a target. That one seemed to be the safest of them all, certainly safer than County Bank, which is behind the bank and out of view of the road. If you have any information on this, give the Laurel Police a call at 875-2244.
