Before 5:15 a.m., officers responded to the Bank of America at 3807 North Duke St.
Officials said a driver pulled up to an ATM, tied a rope to it, and tried to pull it away with his black pickup truck.
The ATM was loosened, but it was too heavy for the truck, which was damaged to the point where it couldn't be driven.
The driver abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene.
Officials said they will be reviewing security footage for an image of the suspect.
