At 3:15 p.m. March 27, an unidentified thief robbed a senior citizen as he used the ATM at Sun Trust Bank located at 1409 E. Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach.

The victim noticed the man walk up holding a gray jacket over his left hand. The man stood very close and asked the victim for $20. The victim refused to comply, but once the withdrawal was complete, the man snatched the money from his hands. The thief fled on foot.
