Police said the culprit robbed a man at a Bank of America ATM at 390 N. Orange Ave. on July 9 around 8:53 p.m., stealing the man's cash and iPhone.

In a second incident, police said the same man approached a woman, pulled her out of her car and took off, nearly running over her, on Aug. 16 around 1:22 p.m. That woman's vehicle, a 2007 Volkswagen Beetle with tag R574EQ, was found on Tuesday.

On Aug. 24, the same man stole cash and a woman's white, four-door 2013 Subaru Impreza with tag CZEU86, police said. That car was also found on Tuesday, but details were unknown.

"I'm upset. It's one thing to take my possessions, I can replace that," the 22-year-old victim. "But taking my sense of security it's hard to get back."

The assailant was described as a black man, 30 to 45 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, with a stocky build.

The victim said she saw the man looking like he was sleeping against the building next door when she came up to the ATM.

"I was just willing to give him whatever he wanted. I didn't scream until he was already in," the victim told Local 6.

Anyone with any information on the man's whereabouts or identity is asked to contact Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
