Texarkana Texas Police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the bank robbery suspect shown in the attached surveillance photographs.
At approximately 2:55 p.m. on August 3, Texarkana, Texas Police responded to a bank robbery call at the Wells Fargo bank in the 1700 block of New Boston Road. The bank teller told officers that a black male, wearing a black t-shirt and a black hat, passed her a note demanding money. The teller complied with the demand and the man left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was displayed during the robbery.
It is believed that the suspect is also responsible for a strong arm robbery that occurred in the 1600 block of New Boston Road on the previous day. In that early morning robbery, a black male forced a female employee into the building as she was opening the business and demanded money. The man fled from the scene in the victim’s vehicle after taking less than twenty dollars in change. The vehicle was recovered a short time later in an alley adjacent to the 500 block of Blanton Street.
Anyone with information on either of these robberies is asked to call the Texarkana Texas Police Department at 903-798-3116 or CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
