The woman started to walk away and saw that the subject had moved over to the ATM she had been using.

The victim realized that she had not closed out her transaction, and that the subject was making a transaction on her account, Whitney said.

She attempted to close the transaction and stop him, but the suspect grabbed her by the neck and pinned her against the wall while he completed the transaction, Whitney said.
