Gunmen rob great-grandmother at East Atlanta ATM

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

A great-grandmother robbed at gunpoint said she was attacked during broad daylight, Sunday after church.

Eloise Abercrombie went to the East Atlanta Bank of America ATM on Flat Shoals Avenue. 

"I stopped there, I was just minding my own business," Abercrombie said.

Abercrombie said she went to the bank to pull out some gas money.

She said the only money she had in her account was a recent Social Security check and two robbers got away with all of it.

"I guess that particular day they said she's the targeted one," Abercrombie said.

Abercrombie said the suspects got away with $380 from her account.

She said one of the robbers held a gun to her side.

Abercrombie said the men left her with just $11 dollars for the rest of the month until her next Social Security check arrives.

Abercrombie said she's not worried about the money.

"I'm just glad they spared me my life," Abercrombie said.

The victim did not have a very good description of the robbers. She said one man appeared to be in his 30s. The second suspect appeared to be in his 50s or 60s and walked with a limp.

Atlanta Police are investigating.
