The FBI is seeking the assistance of the public in identifying a bank robber who may be a married man, due to what was spotted on his hand. According to the FBI, the suspect wore what appeared to be a gold wedding band on his left ring finger while robbing the Amegy Bank, located on Hempstead Highway in Houston on Wednesday.

The FBI gives details of the robbery: “At about 12:35 p.m., the man walked into the bank and displayed a black semi-automatic pistol. He demanded money from a teller, and left the bank after receiving some cash. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.”

Earlier Wednesday, police chased the suspects who robbed the bank and apprehended them inside a Houston cemetery.

Additional information from the FBI indicates that the suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5’5” to 5’7” tall, 160 – 170 pounds with a small to medium build. He also wore a black button-down shirt or jacket over a white t-shirt with dark colored pants. With dark sunglasses and a black ball cap with a white star on the face of the cap, he also carried a black semi-automatic pistol during the robbery.

Tipsters could receive up to $5,000 for information leading to the charging and arrest of this robber, or any felony suspect.
