Woman Talks Robber Out Of Robbery

One woman talked her way out of a robbery in Wallingford last week, according to a police report.

Around 11:00pm on May 20th, the woman was depositing checks at an ATM  near Burke Ave N and N 45th St when a man walked up behind her, pushed something in her back and said “don’t turn around.”

The man demanded money, and when the victim refused, he told her “I don’t want to hurt you.”

The woman told the man “I don’t want you to hurt me either,” and the man backed off.

The woman finished depositing her checks, went home, and called police.

Police are looking into whether the ATM camera captured an image of the man.
