Masked man tries robbery at ATM

A man armed with a knife and wearing a goblin mask attempted to rob a woman at a north-side ATM last week.

The woman pulled up to the Bank of America drive-thru ATM near North Thornydale Road and West Linda Vista Boulevard on the evening of March 18, Deputy Tom Peine, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department, said in a news release.

While at the ATM, a man in a Halloween mask appeared at her window holding a knife.

The woman quickly drove away and was unharmed.

"Surveillance footage ... showed what appeared to be a male individual with a light complexion and dark hair wearing dark clothing and what looks like a green demon mask with purple horns," Peine said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
