Police seek public's help in finding ATM robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Boardman police are asking the public to help identify a man caught on camera attempting to rob someone while they were using an ATM.

Police say the crime happened last Monday, just after midnight, at the Huntington Bank on Youngstown-Poland Rd.

Surveillance video shows a hand-gun being placed at the head of the victim, who says the suspect demanded that he withdraw money. Police say the victim pretended to obey the gunman, but then fled, and called 911.

While police search for the suspect, they offer advice to anyone using an ATM.

"Especially at night you have to be aware of your surroundings. If you have time, drive around the building a few times before you stop and use the ATM so that you can see if someone is there waiting on the other side of the wall or bushes or something like that, where they could jump out and try to rob you," said Detective Sgt. Glenn Riddle of the Boardman Police Department.

The suspect is believed to be between 5'6" and 5'9" with dark brown to black hair. Police believe the suspect has a skinny build and was dressed in black armed with a handgun.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call Boardman Police at 330-726-4144
