The bank robber did not get away with any cash, but he did get away with a getaway driver after an attempted robbery of the J.P. Morgan Chase Bank located at 2305 Wirt Road in Houston, Texas, late in the afternoon on July 30, 2013. The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force needs your help identifying the man and his possible accomplice and released the below bank surveillance photographs.

At about 4:05 p.m., the man entered the bank alone. He approached a teller and handed over a threatening note demanding cash. After waiting some time, the man left the bank without getting any money. After exiting the bank, he took off running towards Hammerly Street. Witnesses watched as he got into the back passenger-side of a 1998-2001 four-door, gold Oldsmobile Alero. The car had dark tinted windows. The vehicle was last seen heading down Wirt Road towards Interstate 10. No weapon was observed by witnesses. No one was physically hurt.

The robber was described as a black male, 18-25 years old 5’1”-5’4” tall, 120-140 pounds with a thin build. He wore a tan Polo-type shirt, sunglasses, and a black cap with a red emblem.
