Elderly woman robbed at bank ATM
Police have repeated their “take care” warning after an elderly woman was robbed seconds after she had withdrawn money from a cash machine.
The theft with violence happened in Gran Canaria and was recorded on a CCTV camera.
Footage shows how a middle-aged stocky man stood behind the woman, who was by herself, as she typed in her code. She appears to be wary as on a couple of occasions, she takes a look over her shoulder to look at the man who is standing very near to her.
Once the money was withdrawn, the man quickly pushed the woman and got away with the cash within seconds.
The cash machine was in Las Palmas and the man was later arrested for theft.
Police say anyone using a cash machine should be very alert and be aware of anyone loitering with intent.
