BC7129-10-200801.jpgAt approximately 10:25 p.m., a gunman entered the Comerica Bank on Eldridge Parkway in Houston. He pulled a semiautomatic handgun and placed it against the head of the teller who greeted him.

Taking that teller hostage, he demanded cash, threatened to shoot her, and forced her towards the teller counter. Another teller behind the counter emptied her cash drawer of money and placed it inside a black bag provided by the gunman.

He then released the teller and fled the bank on foot. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.

The gunman is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 29-31 years old, 5’10”-6′ tall, 215 pounds with a thick build. He was clean shaven with a shaved head. He carried a black semiautomatic handgun and a black cloth shopping type bag with green lettering to carry the money. He had a burn scar on his left wrist. During the robbery, he wore a yellow short sleeved shirt and dark slacks.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000.00 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.
