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.
