The Houston FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a bank robber who robbed a bank with a large bandage covering his left cheek and chin and bandages covering his right wrist and some of his fingers. It happened at the Comerica Bank located at 9997 Almeda Genoa in Houston, Texas, earlier this afternoon (August 29, 2012). Photographs from the robbery captured the bandit and his bandages and are at the conclusion of this press release.
