Houston FBI officials are seeking help identifying a bank robber who may be a married man.

The man dubbed the “Wedding Band Bandit” walked into the Amegy Bank at about 12:35 p.m. today, located at 12130 Hempstead Highway, and proceded to demand money from a teller while displaying a black semi-automatic pistol. The robber appeared to be wearing a gold wedding band on his left ring finger.
