Fort Worth bank robbed for 2nd time this week

The Chase bank in the 6300 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard was hit by a bank robber for the second time this week when it was robbed about at 1:20 p.m. Thursday by a man who fled in a pickup truck.

No weapons were used and nobody was injured, said Lt. Paul Henderson, police spokesman.

The same bank was struck Monday by a bandit police call the "Nomad Bandit." Henderson said Thursday's robbery was by a different bandit.

In Thursday's holdup, the robber approached a teller and demanded money before leaving with an undetermined amount of cash, Henderson said.

The suspect was described as a black man, 5-feet-11-inches tall, 180 pounds, a mustache and wearing a gray polo shirt with dark blue or black pants. He was wearing a black "Air Jordan" cap, Henderson said.

His image was caught on bank security cameras.

Witnesses told police that the man left in a white Ford F-150 pickup driven by a white man.

Three banks on Camp Bowie were robbed in the past week.

A man accused of robbing a Wells Fargo in the 5800 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard on July 10 was arrested. That same day, about 20 minutes before the Wells Fargo robbery, the Frost National Bank in the 3800 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard was robbed.

A man wearing a blue denim shirt, black gloves, a black hat and a black scarf that covered his face robbed the Chase Bank in the 6300 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard on Monday.

Police called that suspect the "Nomad Bandit" because he wore a black scarf across his face, kind of like a desert wanderer. He is still at large, Henderson said.

Anyone with information can call Detective Michael Baggott at 817-989-3330 or Crime Stoppers at 800-469-TIPS.
