A 26-year-old man was held at gunpoint Tuesday night at an ATM on North Congress Avenue, city police said. The suspects, two men, reportedly took off with his car, wallet and iPhone.

The man was at the drive-thru ATM at about 11:30 p.m. at Chase Bank north of Old Boynton Road depositing his paycheck when the two men approached his silver 2012 Honda Civic and pointed a gun at him.

The gunman climbed into the backseat, held a gun to the driver’s head and demanded he withdraw money from the ATM. The second man was in the front passenger seat.

The gunman ordered the driver exit the car and hand over his wallet and iPhone. He then climbed into the driver’s seat and the other man exited the front passenger seat and climbed into a gold Nissan Altima waiting in the lot. Both fled.

The victim walked to the restaurant where he works and called police.
