The Dallas FBI Violent Crimes Task Force and Dallas Police Department are requesting the public’s assistance to identify the suspect responsible for up to 11 bank robbery offenses in Dallas, Texas. Since December 18, 2014, the “Lunch Buddy Bandit” has robbed, or attempted to rob, financial institutions around lunchtime. The most recent robbery occurred on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at Capital One Bank branch at 4111 Gaston Avenue in Dallas, Texas.
In most instances, the suspect verbally demands money from the teller and, after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, flees the location on foot. At one robbery location, witnesses observed the suspect leaving the area in a light-colored Chevrolet Impala with a sunroof, tinted windows, and spoiler on the trunk. While the subject has indicated he had a weapon, no one has been physically injured to date.
