HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is asking for help in identifying a holiday bank robber who brandished a weapon during the robbery.

According to officials with the FBI, the suspect brandished a black semi-automatic handgun during the armed robbery of a Houston bank Wednesday evening.

The FBI provides additional details of the robbery: “The bank robbery happened at the Chase Bank located at 1351 West 43rd Street in Houston, Texas shortly after 5:00 p.m. this evening. The bank robber walked up to the counter, grabbed a deposit slip and wrote a threatening note on it which demanded cash. He then walked up to a teller, showed her the note and pulled out a black semi-automatic handgun from his waistband. The teller gave the man some cash. He was last seen walking away from the bank on foot. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.”
