HOUSTON — A man wearing a security guard’s uniform robbed a southeast Houston bank on Wednesday, the FBI Violent Crime Task Force said.

Investigators hope someone in the public will recognize something about the man that will lead them to a suspect.

The robbery happened as the Capital One Bank opened for business, according to the FBI. At 9:05 a.m. the man went into the bank at 11408 Gulf Freeway, about two miles inside Beltway 8. He dressed as a security guard and pointed a pistol at workers.

He ordered bank employees to lay on the lobby floor and made demands for money, threatening to shoot them if they did not comply.

The suspect then fled with an unknown amount of money. No one was hurt.

The FBI described the robber as a black male in his late 40s or early 50s, approximately five feet, nine inches tall with a thin build.
