Citizens catch 15-year-old who robbed woman at ATM

Spring Hill, FL-- A teenage boy was arrested Monday in Spring Hill after he robbed a woman at an ATM and was caught and held by witnesses before deputies arrived. 

According to reports, it was around 8 p.m. when a 53-year-old woman withdrew money from the ATM near Spring Hill Dr. and Pinehurst Dr. 

The teen sneakily followed her as she walked away, and then attempted to snatch her purse. When she resisted, he yanked her purse, knocked her to the ground and ran away, reports say. 

Luckily, multiple witnesses saw the robbery take place. One woman helped the victim, while at least three other good Samaritans chased after and caught the teen. 

Officials arrested him and took him to the Hernando County Dentention Center, from which he was later released to his parents. 

The teen was charged with Robbery by Sudden Snatching.
