Falmouth woman robbed at gunpoint in Portland

PORTLAND — A 36-year-old Falmouth woman was robbed at gunpoint at a downtown bank ATM Thursday evening, according to a Police Department press release.

Police responded at about 5:35 p.m. after the woman said she was forced to withdraw an undisclosed amount of money from her bank account at a TD Bank ATM at 2 Portland Square.

The woman told police the suspect showed a black, semi-automatic handgun, and fled west toward Pleasant Street after he took the money and the woman's cell phone.

The suspect was described as a white man, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall, and weighing between 160 and 180 pounds. He wore jeans and a blue pull-over hooded sweatshirt, which was under a light gray-blue, zippered hooded sweatshirt, according to police. He also wore a black winter mask that revealed only his eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 874-8533.
