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.
