As the roads were crowding with rush-hour traffic earlier today, a man threatened a teller at a Wells Fargo Bank branch in Houston and made his getaway. The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force needs your help to identify the Rush Hour Robber. Bank surveillance photographs taken during the robbery are below.

At about 5:00 p.m., the robber entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 235 West 20th Street in Houston, Texas. He walked up to the counter and handed a teller a threatening note demanding money. Witnesses were not sure if the man was armed with a weapon. The teller gave the man some cash. He was last seen walking east on West 20th Street. No one was physically hurt.

The bank robber is described as a white male in his 60s, 5’10” to 6’0” tall, 160-180 pounds, with a thin to medium build and a pale complexion. He was unshaven with gray whiskers. He wore a black baseball-style hat, a black work-style jacket, and work boots.

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