A violent ATM robbery was caught on camera of when a man attacked a 55-year-old woman at an Albuquerque ATM last summer.

Police say the suspect Kelvin Dickerson is accused of not only that attack, but 10 others.

District court papers show from June to September of 2013 Dickerson drove to ATM's around Albuquerque and robbed people who were making deposits.

Police say altogether Dickerson stole more than $16,000 in nearly a dozen attacks.

He was arrested September of last year on state charges, but because the charges involved robbery at a bank's ATM. He was also hit with federal charges.

Dickerson was supposed to plead guilty in district court Wednesday but he's been in federal custody since December 19th of 2013. That explains why Dickerson wasn't in district court today to change his plea to guilty.

Dickerson has already pleaded guilty to those federal charges for which he faces more than 100 years in prison.
