Dallas police said they are working on yet another frightening case of someone breaking into a parked car and then hiding in the back seat to rob the driver.
Police said the second victim was a Hispanic male shopping at the Walgreens store at 5001 Ross Ave. near Lower Greenville at about 2:15 p.m.
He left his vehicle unlocked. When he got back into his car, the robber was in the backseat and pointed a gun. The suspect forced the victim to drive to several ATMs, but the man had reached the maximum withdrawal amount. According to police, the suspect made the victim drive to his residence before eventually stealing the car. The victim was not injured, police said.
A nearly identical crime happened at another Walgreens, just a few miles away in January. Shortly after midnight, a woman left her home to go to a neighborhood Walgreens in the 5700 block of E. Mockingbird Lane. The young mom of twins, with her husband on parenting duty at home, had a brief moment of parental freedom to run a few errands.
He demanded she withdraw $500 as if he knew what the ATM limit would be. Then he demanded she drive to the next closest ATM, where he demanded she withdraw $500 more. After that, fraud protections and ATM withdrawal limits would not allow her to take out any more.
The woman who spoke to WFAA said the incident lasted about 15 minutes. He made her drive around until he demanded to be let out near the corner of Greenville and Monticello. She drove home, unhurt, to alert her husband and to call 911.
