About 12 hours later, police say, the same armed suspect approached a woman who’d pulled up to an ATM in the 4000 block of Livernois. He came around from behind her vehicle, pointed a gun at her through her car window and took the cash directly from the ATM. No shots were fired and the woman wasn’t physically hurt.
