NEW INFO: Woman Robbed At ATM

A woman using a drive thru ATM gets held up and robbed by two men armed with guns.

Greenville police say it happened around 9:30 at the Bank of America on Stanstonburg Road Tuesday night.

Officers say the 29-year-old Farmville woman had driven up to the ATM and was retrieving her card from the machine when two armed men approached...one from the front of her vehicle and the other from the rear.

Officers say they forced the woman to give up her PIN and withdrew an undisclosed amount of money from the bank. They also took the money the victim had just obtained.

She was uninjured, but the duo took off on foot and are still on the run this morning.

The gunmen are described as two black men, possibly late 20's, wearing black toboggans, black long sleeve shirts or jackets and both had on what appeared to be a partial ski mask covering up to their noses. The mask appeared to be thick fabric with gray and black streaks.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.

    Whenever one of these worthless pieces of cr*p gets run over or shot by a victim, the dead bums family always trots out saying he was a good boy, nice, "was getting his life back together", etc. Yeah, right, he was an armed robber and the world was done a favor by their death.

    Boy, reading and seeing the story of the video, sure scared me! I'm female, and if I go to an atm at night, I have my boyfriend go with me. Now, I don't want to even do that either, getting to scary.

    I agree with Russ. Let's send them to China by way of Afghanistan's front line, then if they make it out of there, then off to China. USA needs to create a 5th military branch--just for Thugs like them. They want to shoot guns, let them do so in Afghanistan. Seriously yall think about it. It will solve some of the welfare problems, no need for food stamps, housing, medical-the military will take care of that. All they need to do (is what they love to do anyway-just on the front line). Those kind try to act all big and bad, but no one have the guts to join up so let's draft them.

    Victim is absolutely right ... you never know what you'd really do unless you're in that situation. Unfortunately we've all learned a lesson at her expense: mow 'em down next time. Now we all know. And to all the cop bashing around here: same lesson can be learned there too ... unless you're in those cop's shoes, don't even assume that by some miracle you'd be right where a crime was taking place. They put their lives on the line every day and I'd show a little appreciation instead. After all, you can get more flies with honey than with vinegar. Victim: you had one heck of a day yesterday and I'm just glad you're okay. You didn't do anything wrong - just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Setup a deadly sting for the criminals. Park an Escalade on the street in a high crime area. Leave the doors unlocked, keys in the ignition. Once the robbers get in and turn the key, the doors will lock and a poison gas will saturate the cabin, killing the perps. Afterward, "clean" the car out and set the trap for the next criminals. Move the Escalade around so the perps don't get suspicious. I think this is a GREAT idea and might decrease robberies by over 50%.

    I agree with Clinton. She should have run down the one in front of her and headed to the police station. Another thing, I don't get gas, food and especially money in that area. Around the hospital is a very dangerous part of town. Get away from there if you need to get out of your car for anything.

    Wait just a minute. You mean to tell me that this woman could have prevented this robbery and she failed??? All she had to do was RUN OVER ONE OF THE IDIOTS. The second one would have ran, told all the other thugs, and then the rest of the idiots doing this would think twice before becoming another hood ornamate.

START SHOOTING BACK AT THE ROBBERS/CRIMINALS AND QUIT GIVING SUCH LEANIENT SENTENCES.TREAT THEM LIKE THEY DO IN MARICOPA COUNTY AZ.BETWEEN OBAMA CARE AND WELFARE WHY DO THEY NEED TO ROB ANYONE AT ALL?

    All, All Atm's should be equipped with surveillance cameras, all of them. It should be mandatory at the banking institutions. They have them running inside during the day to protect the employees. Turn them on outside after banking hours, for the banking patrons safety. Speak up and demand safety. If your bank cannot give you safety at the ATM, do not bank there.

    Its time for the GOOD citizens of this town to stand up...This is getting ridiculous...if the police won't do anything than we should be allowed to defend ourselves as we see fit...I am glad to hear that the victim was unharmed physically and she has every right to go and get a gun and a permit bc thats what Im getting ready to do...And in so doing Im going to turn the tables on these thugs...Start shooting first and asking questions later...When they say give me all your money Im gonna switch it up and say No you give me all your money bc my gun will be in sight from the beginning...And for the people who think that a gun is not the solution sorry but I would rather shoot a thug than have them shoot me or the ones I love. We all work hard and earn our money why should they be able to just come and take it from us???
