A young woman withdrawing cash from a Suter Brook ATM was threatened with a machete, Port Moody Police have reported.

The incident occurred on Saturday, Feb. 2 just before 1 a.m. The 22-year-old woman had withdrawn $60 from the VanCity Bank at 121 Brew St. when a man entered the ATM area, brandished a machete and demanded the woman's money.

She threw it on the ground and he picked it up before fleeing. He was heard yelling "Go, go, go" before getting into the passenger seat of a waiting vehicle.

The suspect is described as a Middle Eastern or Indo-Canadian man about 20 to 35 years old, with black hair slicked back. He did not speak with any noticeable accent.

He and the accomplice fled in a vehicle believed to be a 2003-2004 Chrysler Intrepid.
