Mom attacked, tried to rob daughter's classmate, deputies say

Posted: Updated:

DELTONA (AP) - A robber stopped attacking a teenager at a Central Florida ATM when the girl recognized her as a classmate's mom, authorities say.

The 17-year-old girl called Volusia County Sheriff's deputies Saturday night to report the attempted robbery.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, the teen was returning to her car after stopping by an ATM when Tammy Perras, 45, grabbed her from behind and smashed her face into the steering wheel.

As the attack continued, the teen realized the attacker was a classmate's mom and called her out.

Deputies say the attack stopped, and the girl gave Perras $5 to get her to go away.

Perras was arrested a short time later and remains in the Volusia County Jail on burglary with assault and robbery charges.
