Woman held at gunpoint at Charlotte ATM

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police are hoping someone can help identify the gunman who terrorized a young mother and her 2-year-old daughter at an ATM in east Charlotte Monday morning.

The man approached the woman with a gun as she pulled up to an ATM at the Wells Fargo branch on Albemarle Road just after 8 a.m., according to police.

"He said give me everything you have, and I said 'I don't have nothing,'" the woman, who did not want to be identified, told Eyewitness News.

She said the suspect, wearing a hoodie, told her to give him cash, but when she said she didn't have any, he told her to write a check.

"He told me to do the check for $2,000 and I tried to write it but I couldn't," she said.

She described how the gunman threatened to hurt her daughter if she didn't give him what he wanted.

"I was thinking of my baby. Him not to take it. I don't know what this guy is thinking in his head," she said.

He finally grabbed her checkbook and ran when some landscapers came to begin work at the bank.

Police describe the man as young, wearing a black hoodie and bright red shoes.

The victim said she never did see his face.
