Police search for robbers after ATM attacks

SALISBURY, N.C. - Crooks have targeted people at a local ATM three times in just a few weeks. Police told Eyewitness News on Friday that two of the crimes may be connected.

The latest victim told Eyewitness News he was at the Wells Fargo on Innes Street at 11:45 p.m. Thursday, checking his balance, when two older teens with hoodies started rushing for him with a rifle.

The teens chased him to his car and one hit him in the shoulder with the gun.

Police said two people fitting the same description robbed a man at the same ATM in November. That time they attacked a man, stole his money and car.

The victim in the most recent incident called it terrifying.

"Having a gun pointed at you, it's not something you go through every day," said Adrian Cazares.

Police said another robbery took place at the ATM on Wednesday, but they already made an arrest in that case. Call police if you have any information in either of the crimes.
