ROTTERDAM — Rotterdam police are looking for help in finding a suspect who robbed a 72-year-old woman at an Altamont Avenue ATM this week.

The incident happened Tuesday about 4:15 p.m. at the Bank of America, 1428 Altamont Ave., when the bank was closed.

The woman told police she had just finished withdrawing money from the drive-thru ATM when the suspect approached and demanded the cash. The woman handed over the money and the suspect fled toward Hannaford.

The woman was not injured and the suspect did not display a weapon or threaten the use of a weapon, police said.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He had freckles on his face and wore a dark brown zip-up jacket, a dark knit hat with a brim and a blue knit scarf pulled over his face.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Rotterdam detectives at 355-7397.
