The group tried to use chains to drag the ATM out of a bank, but their chains weren't long enough for the job.

Suddenly, a man wearing a ski-mask approached the driver's seat window while shoving a large knife toward the woman's face and demanding money. Police said a second robber was at the passenger's window, but could not be seen on video.

The suspects threatened to hurt the women if their demands weren't met.
