Don't go to the ATM after dark
Really, there isn't a lot to expand upon here. I don't have any personal anecdotes about being stabbed or otherwise assaulted while getting cash late at night, but I think we've all seen enough episodes of Law & Order / Criminal Minds / NYPD Blue to know that it's not a good idea.
If you must be out late at night, there are some things you can do to be a little more safe, for example, go out in a group, go out with a big guy or a dog, carry pepper spray. But really, just go with your instincts. If something seems like a bad idea, it probably is, and you should just call your mother to come pick you up.
