Police say the 43-year-old woman was with her 7-year-old son at the WSFS Bank on Fox Hunt Drive in Bear, Delaware on Saturday, around 6 p.m.
The woman had just drawn money from the ATM and was walking back to her car with her son. Suddenly, police say, a masked man armed with a knife approached the two of them and demanded money.
