The armed robbery happened Wednesday around 2 a.m. at the Bank of America at 1025 W. International Speedway Boulevard.
According to Daytona Beach police, Lenard Wilson was waiting in his car at the drive-up ATM as his girlfriend walked up to make a deposit.
Wilson says two gunmen approached him and his girlfriend, demanding money.
"It was very scary, its just one of those moments where your life, is one second away,” he said.
Wilson says one man ordered him to lie on the ground, as the other forced his girlfriend to take $200 out of her bank account.
"The one with the gun at her head, told her he was going to shoot her if she doesn't hurry up,” he said.
Wilson says he started negotiating with the men, and took money out of his account.
The men ran away with $400 and the couples cell phones.
One man was described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and was wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, black shoes and a black baseball hat. He also had a bandana covering his face.
