The Houston FBI Bank Robbery Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the “Band-Aid Bandit,” who robbed the Chase Bank located at 11560 Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas, earlier today. During the robbery, the man wore a band aid on his left cheek. He was not seen after leaving the bank. Photographs from the robbery are below.

At approximately 10:50 a.m., the man entered the bank and waited in line with the rest of the customers.

No one was physically hurt during the robbery.

The robber was described a black male, early 20s, 5’6” tall, with a slender build and a band-aid on his left cheek. He wore a baseball cap, a blue/gray long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans, and black and yellow tennis shoes.
