Police want help from the public to find the man who robbed a Wells Fargo bank branch Wednesday in the 4500 block of Bellaire Drive South.

The man entered the bank about 1:30 p.m. and handed a note to a cashier, Officer Sharron Neal, a police spokeswoman, said in a news release.

“The note stated he was robbing the bank, that he was armed, and would shoot,” Neal said. “The cashier complied, and the suspect exited the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.”

Witnesses said the man was black, about 20 to 25 years old, about 5-feet-8 and 120 to 130 pounds.

He wore a Mavericks ball cap, khaki pants, a white T-shirt, black athletic shoes, and “very large sunglasses,” Neal said.

The man was seen leaving in a white older-model sedan that was parked across from the bank, Neal said.

Anyone with information can call robbery detectives at 817-989-3317 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477. Callers can remain anonymous and they might qualify for a cash reward.
