Man mugs for camera while carjacking woman at ATM in Texas

ARLINGTON, TX -- Police in Arlington have released very clear surveillance video of a man they say robbed and kidnapped a woman.

It happened around 1:00am last wednesday at a Wells Fargo ATM on I-30 and Lamar in Arlington.

Security camera video shows a woman in a black Kia roll up to the ATM and start her transaction. She doesn't see a man sneaking up to her car and then slipping behind the ATM.

As her cash comes out, the man shows himself, armed with a pistol, and demands she give him the money. But the crime doesn't stop there.

The man then forces the woman to get into the trunk of her car, and then he's seen driving off with her trapped in the back. Police say the same man then robbed someone else at another ATM before parking the kia and walking away.

The young woman who was forced into the trunk was not harmed.

Police are now hoping someone recognizes the man so he can face justice.
