The search is underway for the man who robbed a 63-year-old woman at an ATM in broad daylight.It happened around 2:15 p.m. outside the WSFS branch in the 200 block of North Union Street in Wilmington.

Police say the woman was withdrawing cash when she was confronted by a man who said "give me the money or I will shoot you."

The victim told police the man gestured as if he had a gun, but she did not see one.

The robber took the cash and fled east on Conrad Street. The woman was not hurt.

The suspect was described as a black male 5'5" tall with a thin build, narrow boney face and a dark complexion. He was wearing a navy blue baseball cap, a navy blue zippered sweatshirt and dark shorts.

Police say the robbery was similar to two other robberies that occurred within the last month in which two separate victims were robbed while using an ATM in the 1000 Blk. of N. Union Street at the PNC branch. In both of those robberies, a black male suspect demanded money while gesturing that he had a weapon. None of the victims were injured.
