RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A trip to the ATM turns into a violent robbery in Richmond.

A Pizza Hut restaurant manager was trying to make a deposit when someone smashed her window and demanded the money. It happened at the Bank of America in the 2600 block of West Broad Street.

It was around 11:45 Monday night when the manager of Pizza Hut drove one block to the bank to deposit money for the restaurant. When she pulled-up police say, someone attacked -- knocking out her driver's side window and demanding the money bag.

"It definitely makes me feel a little uncomfortable about coming here," said Travis Fermil, a co-worker of the victim.

Fermil calls the crime crazy.

"I do always check my mirrors but I feel like, very easily in between checking your mirrors, somebody could come out of nowhere. There are a lot of places they can be hiding and be out of site," said Fermil.

Bank of America is outfitted with exterior cameras. The bank manager says the cameras work and were rolling when the crime happened. Next door to the bank, the manager of Akida Restaurant says he's now on alert.

"I'm just going to be more careful you know," said Kevin Mak.

Mak also makes deposits at the bank where the crime took place. But he says he never makes those deposits at night.

"We just go in the bank. We never deposit in drive thru," said Mak.

ATM users are always encouraged to pay close attention to their surroundings before and during a transaction. For now, police say there's no detailed description of the robbery suspect.

The victim is recovering. Police say she has cuts on her arms from the glass. If you have any information on the robbery call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
