UPDATE (11:22 a.m., Sept. 25)—Baltimore County police responded to the Perry Hall Bank of America Monday night for a reported ATM robbery.
At about 10:15 p.m., shortly after the victim had made a $40 cash withdraw, a man armed with what may have been gun approached and robbed the victim at the outdoor machine in the 9600 block of Belair Road, according to police.
A police helicopter remained over the area as of 11 p.m.
The suspect was described as a man between 25 and 30 years old, 5 feet and 9 inches tall, with a medium build, according to Lt. Ron Brooks of the White Marsh police precinct.
Brooks urged community members not to use outdoor ATMs after dark. "Use an ATM inside of a convenience store—they're obviously much safer to use after dark," he said.
The investigation is ongoing, he added.
