Why did this take 6 days to become public?
On Saturday, May 12, 2007, at approximately 10:47 pm, a woman was utilizing a drive-thru ATM at the Bank of America, located at 915 Rhode Island Avenue, NE [by the Home Depot/Rhode Island Avenue Metro], when she was suddenly approached by a lone male subject who grabbed the money that she had just withdrawn.
