GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Police are looking for the man who robbed a woman at knife-point while she tried to withdraw money at an ATM.

Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, a woman pulled up to the ATM at the Fifth Third Bank at Leonard and Alpine.

During her transaction, a man walked up and threatened her with a large “hunting” knife, according to GRPD. The suspect demanded that she give him money.

The woman refused, but she had already entered her PIN at the ATM, so he took $60 from the ATM.  The suspect tried to get inside the woman’s car, but her doors were locked and he could not get in.

Then, the suspect ran away from the scene with a second person who was standing nearby.

Police say the suspect is a hispanic man in his 20s; about 5’6″, 140 pounds; wearing black pants, a black hoodie with the hood pulled over his head, gloves on his hands. He spoke with a Spanish accent.
