Memphis, Tenn. — A Memphis man relived frightening moments from the night he was robbed with a gun at an ATM.
The victim is pleading for the public’s help to get the dangerous man who committed the crime off the streets.
The man, who does not want to be identified, trembles every time he looks at the face of the man who almost took his life.
“As I was attempting to empty the ATM, he racked a bullet in the chamber and stuck it in my back and said ‘how much money is in the account?’,” the victim.
Police said the he was robbed at gunpoint at an ATM on Quince.
The robbery happened around midnight last Wednesday.
“He told me to sit down and close my eyes,” the victim said.
He said the gunman told him to hand over his phone, wallet, debit card, and PIN number.
“At that point he pulled the hammer back on the gun and put the gun at the top of my head and said ‘if I can’t get this to work, I’m going to kill you right here and now’,” the victim described.
Police reported the victim ran toward a grouping of condominiums across the street.
“He said I’ve got your I.D. I know where you live. If this ATM card does not work, I’ll come to your house and murder you in your sleep,” the victim told WREG.
Detectives released pictures of the gunman and images of the car he drove that night.
“He had a neck brace on,” the victim recalled. “It looked like he had some tattoos.”
The victim hopes someone will recognize the man who robbed him and help get him off of the streets.
