DELTONA - Authorities say a robber stopped attacking a teenager at a central Florida ATM when the girl recognized her as a classmate's mother.

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 (http://bit.ly/1aa4nz2 ) the teen was returning to her car after stopping by an ATM when 45-year-old Tammy Perras 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.
