He weighs approximately 200 to 240 pounds and had dark shoulder length hair and a dark mustache. The photo obtained from the surveillance video of the suspect is attached to this news release.

HPD Robbery Division Sergeant D. Ryza reported:

The suspect entered the Wallis State Bank armed with a handgun and announced that a robbery was taking place. He ordered everyone to the floor and threw a backpack on the counter, which he demanded the teller fill with money. The suspect continually threatened to take hostages and kept demanding money. After the teller emptied her cash drawer, the suspect fled on foot through the parking lot and jumped the fence into an apartment complex.
