Police have distributed pictures of three men who robbed another man at an ATM and asked the public to help detectives find them.
The incident happened Nov. 25, when one of the three came up behind a man who had just taken money out of the cash machine at Trawick Road and New Bern Avenue a little after 9:30 p.m., police said.
The robber – described as black, about 6 feet tall, with a medium build and wearing a black-and-white jacket or sweatshirt – punched the victim in the face when he turned around and took his wallet and the cash he had just withdrawn, according to the account.
The victim was on the ground and the first suspect was walking away when the two others walked up, kicked the man, threatened to hit him with a wooden pole that one of them carried and stole his watch.
