HOUSTON – The FBI Violent Crime Task Force is asking for public help to identify two men who robbed a Capital One Bank in Tomball on Tuesday. 

At approximately 3:50 p.m., one man entered the bank dressed as a security guard, approached a teller, and began a conversation, according to authorities.

The second man entered the bank, approached a different teller, climbed over the teller counter, and verbally demanded the teller give him money, authorities said.

During the robbery, both men violently shoved bank employees and customers to the floor, according to authorities.

Investigators believe the robbers fled in an unidentified vehicle and no one was physically hurt during the robbery, authorities said.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the robbers. 

The men are described as black males in their 20s and approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall, authorities said.

One of them was wearing a fake security uniform shirt, dark pants and a light blue hat. The second man wore a green jacket, dark pants, a white hat, and a long-hair wig, according to authorities.
