The FBI needs your help identifying a bank robber who may have robbed his second Houston bank this week. The second robbery happened on Thursday afternoon at the Metro Bank located at 2808 Milam, Suite A, in Houston, Texas. At least two witness tellers believe the robber was the same man who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank, located at 10978 Grant Road in Houston, Texas, on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. In that robbery, he was denied cash and walked away with nothing. Bank security photographs from this previous robbery are below.

Thursday’s bank robbery happened at about 2:05 p.m. at the downtown bank. The bank robber walked in carrying a manila envelope and verbally made a threatening demand for cash. The teller complied and gave the robber some cash. He placed it inside the manila envelope and then fled the area. There are no surveillance photographs to release from the Metro Bank at this time. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.

The bank robber is described as a black male, 28-35 years old, approximately 5’6”-5’7” tall, 150-160 pounds, with a goatee. He wore large, black sunglasses; a red or maroon, long-sleeved sweater; and a baseball cap with a “W” logo on the front of the hat. He carried a manila envelope with him during the robbery.

Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber or any felony suspect. If you have information about this crime, please call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS (8477) or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
