GREENSPOINT, Texas - A woman was robbed while using the ATM, and police are still looking for the thief.

Police said it happened Thursday night in the Greenspoint area of North Houston.

"He didn't say anything. He just pointed the gun at me, and I already knew what he wanted," said Patricia Rogers.

Rogers said she was on her way to work around 10 p.m. when she pulled into one of the drive-up lanes.

She withdrew $200 and pulled the receipt out, and that's when the robber drove up and blocked her in.

Rogers said the man, wearing a ski mask, jumped out of the passenger side of his car.

She said she didn't put up a fight. She just handed over the cash and drove away as fast as she could.

"I just hit the gas," said Rogers.

The mother of two was left shaken and distraught, but she said she's just happy to be alive.

"I really think he would've shot me. Something just said, 'Don't put up no fight,'" Rogers said.
