DELTONA, Fla. - Authorities say a robber stopped attacking a teenager at a Deltona 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 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.
