HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The FBI-Houston division is seeking a bank robbery suspect they have nicknamed “The Rush Hour Bank Robber”.

Officials provide details of the robbery: “At about 5:00 p.m., the robber entered the Wells Fargo Bank located at 235 West 20th Street in Houston, Texas. He walked up to the counter and handed a teller a threatening note demanding money. Witnesses were not sure if the man was armed with a weapon. The teller gave the man some cash. He was last seen walking east on West 20th Street. No one was physically hurt.”
