This Nicely Dressed Bank Robber Is Pointing a Gun at You, Ma'am

Enough with the hoodies pulled down low over faces -- one man has decided he's going to rob Houston banks with style.

The casually elegant dude to the right is pointing a semiautomatic at a teller and demanding cash, which he got, at a bank on the Katy Freeway near Bunker Hill yesterday.

The FBI describes him as "older, well-dressed and accessorized," which kinda sounds like an online-dating blurb, but who are we to argue?

The man, who is "approximately 50-59 years old, 5'8" - 5'9" tall, 170-175 pounds with an average build, and a light complexion," walked into the Patriot Bank in the 9500 block of the Katy, handed over a note and then pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol and made a verbal demand for cash.

No one was hurt in the incident. If you've got any info, call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477), or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
