A man was robbed while using a drive-thru ATM machine at a Cerritos bank, authorities said Monday.
The robbery occurred about 8:30 p.m. Sunday at the Wells Fargo Bank at Gridley Road and South Street, said Lt. Tim Householder of the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station.
A man in dark clothing approached the victim on foot as he was using the ATM and brandished a handgun, Householder said. The suspect took valuables from the victim and left the scene on foot.
Householder noted people are particularly vulnerable when using ATM machines after dark.
