A good Samaritan driving through Murfreesboro, Tennessee, stopped to help a seemingly stranded motorist.

However, instead of performing a good deed, the man was held at gunpoint and forced to drive to an ATM, WKRN reports.

The victim had to fork over withdrawn cash. It’s unclear if the suspect has been caught. 

The January incident was unfortunate, but it could have been worse. 

On Dec. 28, 2015, a good Samaritan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was gunned down while helping a driver who was stranded in the snow, WITI reported.

Clifford Morgan, 43, was shot and killed by a man who approached him while he was performing the good deed.

So far, no suspects have been identified in that case.

Buford Tune, a former police officer with 25 years of experience, told WKRN that calling for help is enough and that he’s almost been ambushed by what seemed like motorists in need before too.

“Picking up the phone and calling 911 is helping,”  he said.
