Monday morning at approximately 11:05 a.m. Amarillo Police Officers responded to an armed robbery call in the 1800 block of south Georgia at a Wells Fargo ATM.
A woman was in her vehicle at the ATM when she felt her car move. The woman told police that she saw a man standing by her vehicle near the passenger side door. She told police the man then pointed a gun at her and told her to give him money.
The woman told the man she didn't have any money. While the man was yelling at her and demanding money, he went around the vehicle trying to get to the driver side door. At that point the victim pulled forward trying to get away from the man. The man then got into a black SUV and drove away as well.
According to police the suspect was last seen driving north bound on Georgia. The suspect is described as a white male in his twenties. He was wearing a dark colored baseball cap, sunglasses and he had a bandana tied around his neck.
