Man robbed of cash at NationsBank ATM


A man with a handgun robbed a Severn man of an undisclosed amount of money Friday after the man withdrew cash from an automated teller machine in Glen Burnie, county police said.

John M. Gerrish, 41, told police he was taking money from the ATM at the NationsBank branch in the 7200 block of Ritchie Highway about 8: 30 p.m. when a man approached him from behind, pulled out a dark gray and silver 9-mm semiautomatic handgun with wooden grips and demanded money.

Gerrish handed the man his wallet, but the man said, "No, only the money," police said. Gerrish complied, and the man ordered him to the ground.

As Gerrish went down, the gunman fled through pine trees on the west side of the bank, police said.

Police did not have a description of the robber.
