UPDATE 11/20:  The victim told 13News Now she will no longer be going to ATM's at night.  She says she moved to the area about six weeks ago and was depositing her money earned as a server when she was attacked.  "Cash popped out and he grabbed it.  Snatched it out of my hands and said, 'What the heck is this' That's when I reached down and put the car in gear and sped off."

The victim spoke with 13News Now in hopes of catching the suspect.  "Try to stay as calm as possible.  Give him what he wants and just try to get away as quickly as possible," she said.
