Police seek men who robbed woman at St. Petersburg ATM

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are asking for help finding two men who robbed a 19-year-old woman at knifepoint at an ATM last Thursday.

The woman was making a deposit about 12:45 a.m. at the Wachovia Bank at 9655 Fourth St. N when the men attacked her.

One grabbed her from behind, telling her to follow his instructions. He took her around the side of the building, where another man threatened her with a knife and demanded her PIN.

She gave them the PIN, and one of the men withdrew an undisclosed amount of money from her account. The victim was unharmed.

Police described the man who grabbed her as white, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6, thin and unshaven. He wore a gray hooded pullover with a white logo over his left breast and dark pants.

The man with the pocketknife was described as white, 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6, and thin. He wore a red hooded jacket under a black trench coat and blue jeans.

Police ask anyone with information about the two suspects to call Detective Joe Truong at (727) 892-5939, leave a confidential tip at 892-5000, or text a tip to 420-8911.
