What a couple of pathetic cowards to be picking on a woman like that. Hopefully some of their friends will hear about it and will report them to the police anonymously.

More banks should put an ATM inside the branch as regardless of age, you are very vulnerable using outside ATMs. I only ever use in-branch ATMs
