A newly released surveillance video from an ATM shows a woman getting mugged while making a deposit at a Chase Bank drive-through in Orlando.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred around 7 a..m. Sept 8. The video was just released by the bank.
The sheriff’s office’s Facebook post says that the victim, who was in the driver’s seat, and her husband resisted the attacker, who is seen aggressively reaching into the driver’s side. He “later produced a box cutter knife and grabbed her by the neck as she honked her horn,” authorities say.
After the struggle continues, you can see two good Samaritans approach the car..
The two bystanders then start to fight the would-be robber while the car stays in park.
Leon Wright was one of the men.
“We hear horns blowing like, ‘Bah bah bah … bah bah bah!’ like people are frantic,” Wright told Fox35. “Then the old man rolls the window down and says, ‘Help us, please!’ and I look over and there’s a guy’s head in the car.”
Wright explained he and the other man went into fight mode. He fractured his elbow and wrist in the fracas.
“I just start pounding on this guy’s back, trying to hit him wherever I could,” he said of the suspect who took off and is still at large.
