Man Says Robbers Held Knife To His Throat At Weymouth ATM

ABINGTON (CBS) - "They said they were going to take all my money and stab me inside the ATM." That's part of the terrifying story a 22-year-old Abington man told us after being held up at knifepoint in a Weymouth ATM last Wednesday night.

The victim told us one thief held a knife to his throat; the other pressed a knife to his back. They made him empty his bank account and got away. Before they left, the victim says one of the robbers convinced the other robber not to kill him.

The victim also remembers one of the muggers calling the other "cousin." The victim's iPhone was pinged by police and later recovered in a trash barrel outside a Cumberland Farms in Weymouth.

Police are asking the public for help and posted surveillance photos from the ATM.
