ORLANDO, Fla. (CIRCA) - Police in Florida are searching for the man who attempted to rob a woman at knifepoint at a bank last month.
According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, at 7 a.m. on Sept. 8, a 55-year-old woman pulled up to the drive-thru ATM at a Chase Bank on South Orange Blossom Trail.
In bank footage posted to the OCSO Facebook page, a man in a black hoodie appears and tries to steal her purse. The suspect reaches into the car and grabs the woman by the neck as she honks her horn. Her husband, who was in the front passenger seat, tries to fend off the attacker. Police say the suspect produced a box cutter.
Toward the end of the video, two Good Samaritans manage to pull the suspect away from the car before he takes off.
While police say the man fled in an unknown direction, they believe he is still in the Orlando area.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-8477.
