Woman robbed at gunpoint at Greenwood Bank of America ATM

Meghan emailed us to warn the neighborhood that she was robbed at gunpoint at the Greenwood Bank of America ATM on North 85th Street late Tuesday night:

(A)t approximately 11:40pm on Tuesday, November 20, I was robbed at gunpoint at the Bank of America ATM on 85th near Greenwood Avenue. I pulled in to do a quick transaction, and when I turned to walk back to my car, I was surrounded by 3 young adult males with black hoodies and bandanas over their faces. They pulled a gun on me and demanded me to enter my PIN. They threatened to kill me if I incorrectly entered the PIN on the first try. They were late teens/early 20s.

Then, they turned to run away, but then ran back to demand my phone and car & house keys. I was left with my car (no keys) and my big black lab dog in the back of my stranded car. I begged for help from two Samaritans to call 911 and was denied assistance to call 911 by both. Thankfully, I was able to make contact with police by contacting a neighbor. Over 7 patrol cars searched the area of Greenwood to Fremont Ave and throughout Greenwood Park between 12-1am but could not locate the suspects.

A Seattle Police online report confirms the incident occurred at about 11:43 p.m. Tuesday, and was reported to police at 12:12 a.m. Wednesday.
