The assailant reached into Mr. Williams' pocket and took his wallet before running away, police said.

Robbery foiled at ATM as withdrawal fails

A man armed with a small handgun tried to rob a Glen Burnie woman at an automatic teller machine yesterday, but fled when the woman couldn't get any money from the machine.

County police said the 48-year-old woman was making a deposit at a machine at the Maryland National Bank branch in the 7200 block of Ritchie Highway when a man approached her, stuck a small handgun in her midsection and demanded a specific amount of money.

The woman tried to withdraw the money several times without success, and her assailant fled when another car pulled onto the parking lot.
