Suspect Blames COVID-19 For Bank Robbery “I Didn’t Get A Stimulus Check”

With most of the country still on some form of a shutdown, people are no longer waiting on the government to provide monetary assistance. Case in point, the Houston man who robbed the Woodforest National Bank on July 8⁣.

Authorities say the suspect walked into the bank with his face concealed with a dark color bandana, approached the teller, and asked to make a withdrawal. 

The man then handed the teller a folded up piece of notebook paper that read, “I didn’t get a stimulus or that 10k loan. I lost my business to COVID, so please make this easy and comply. I don’t wanna hurt nobody but will if I have to. Any suspicious moves and I will start shooting so, please go get my money. Don’t make anything noticeable!”⁣

⁣The teller also told the police that the suspect described as a Black male, between 30 and 39 years old, around 6 feet with a large build, made a verbal demand for cash. ⁣

No weapon was brandish or visible seen, but the teller said she feared for her life and safety and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money. ⁣⁣

The suspect snatched the money with both hands and ran from the location. The suspect has yet to be apprehended, and there are no reports of a possible get-away vehicle leaving the scene. ⁣
