FBI Searching For Woodforest Bank Robber

HOUSTON, TX — The FBI Violent Crime Task Force is seeing information that will help identify the person who robbed a Woodforest National Bank in northwest Houston in this summer.

On June 29, 2017, around 9:30 a.m., the suspect came into the Woodforest National Bank located inside Walmart at 3450 West FM 1960.

The robber, who may have been a man dressed as a woman, approached the counter and handed the teller a threatening note demanding cash.

The teller gave the robber an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber left the store in a new, small, white, four-door vehicle; make and model unknown.

Witnesses describe the bank robber as a woman, possibly Middle Eastern or South Asian, wearing a large white scarf with brown and gold details around her head, a long black dress, and red and gold sunglasses.
