Woman robbed while using ATM in Kitimat

On Sunday a woman was robbed at the RBC ATM machine by an unknown suspect.

At around 9 p.m. on Sunday a woman using the ATM machine at the Royal Bank of Canada was robbed of $500.

Police say the unknown male pushed in to the back of the woman and pressed an unknown object in to the middle of her left shoulder and demanded she withdraw $500.

The suspect is described as over six feet tall, slender build, dressed in all black with a ski mask covering his face, and a hoodie over his head.

The woman was not injured, and the male made off with the cash but police could not track the person down following the robbery.

Police are encouraging the public to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity when using an ATM after hours.
