According to information obtained from the FBI/Houston Division, the Houston FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is seeking the public’s help in identifying two men who remain at large after a bank robbery at the Woodforest Bank. The bank is located inside the Walmart at 9235 Sam Houston Parkway in Houston.
Reports from the FBI indicate that one man is in the custody of Harris County Sheriff’s deputies pending charges while the other two bank robbery suspects remain at large. The bank’s surveillance camera captured photographs of one of the two who remain at large.
Additional reports indicate that at approximately 11:20a.m. Friday morning, two men entered the bank and demanded cash. The third man waited outside in a getaway car. One of the robbers received an undisclosed amount of money from a bank teller.
