ATM Attacker Foiled By Quick-Thinking Woman ... and His Girlfriend
Police in Florida arrested the man allegedly shown in the above photo attempting to rob a woman at an ATM Monday night.
Surveillance images show a man sneaking up behind a woman, putting his arm around her neck and demanding she withdraw a large sum of money.
At some point, he appeared to try to conceal his face with his shirt.
Police said, however, that the quick-thinking woman hit the "panic" button on her vehicle's alarm and the man fled.
The woman told police she saw the man carrying what looked like a hammer as he left the Bank of America in West Melbourne.
Once police released these images to the public, the man's girlfriend turned him in.
Scott Patrick Deason, 44, now faces charges of armed robbery and false imprisonment.
