— Raleigh police are asking for the public’s help to identify three men who were seen in security video last month robbing a man who had just gotten cash out of an ATM.

The crime happened just after 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 25. Police said the 48-year-old victim withdrew cash from the ATM – near the intersection of Trawick Road and New Bern Aveune – when he was approached by the robbers.

The first robber punched him in the face and stole his wallet and the cash before walking away. The two others then kicked and threatened him with a wooden stick and took his watch.

The second and third robbers fled when another customer drove up to the ATM.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357 or visit the Crime Stoppers website for text and email options. Crime Stoppers pays cash for tips that solve cases, and callers are confidential.

    ALL LIVES MATTER! When is the protest for our WHITE BROTHER? We can all sit in the middle of the road with one arm up like the poor guy in the picture. Can't wait to hear what Barber has to say about this. I'm sure he's going to be outraged and demand justice. NOT!!

    I have no less than 3 friends and family members that would have ended up as this unfortunate fellow had they taken your advice.

    So, do we say #BlackLivesMatter now? When is it appropriate? I'm so confused.

    What's not confusing is that this kind of nonsense is exactly why people get shot by police. I can guarantee you they'd not just drop that weapon and peacefully surrender to an officer who might have pulled up.

    You are correct because it doesn't fit the media's mantra.... Unfortunately events like this is so common place they are hardly considered sensational news!

    This is why I never go to the ATM at night and alone, especially if I have to get out of the car. I would rather go to the grocery store or Walmart and buy a pack of gum to get cash back. So sad this happened.

    It needs to be determined whether this was a random robbery, or if they targeted him specifically because he's white.

    wolfpack7070 The crime happened to a white man so it can not be a racially motivated crime.

    Why is this info just being released almost a month after it happened?

    I guess you would just curl up and pray the police show up before they beat you to death? Well some of us would rather defend ourselves instead of relying on someone else and we do have enough sense not to just go around shooting first and asking questions later like you obliviously would.. But then again you're terrified of guns so just keep hiding under your bed and it might be ok...
