A gun-wielding robber made a 32-year-old victim withdraw money for him from a Lower East Side ATM, police said.

Cops said that on Sun., May 16, around 2:30 p.m., the victim was approached by a stranger at Clinton and Delancey Sts. The man showed a firearm and, while threatening him, demanded the victim fork over cash.
