You Think I'm A Bank Robber Just Because Of The Way I'm Dressed?

Okay, yeah, I'm a bank robber
Some bank robbers act all natural, looking like everyone else as they wait their turn with the teller. Others just flaunt it.

The guy who robbed a Prosperity Bank branch in the 8800 block of Westheimer yesterday was one of the latter. Or maybe he just was having a bad hair day.

At any rate, he entered the bank with his head covered by a towel, a baseball hat on his head and sunglasses.

As FBI special agent Patricia Villafranca put it, "The robber must have aroused some suspicion when he entered the bank."

Maybe the guy's just very, very sensitive to the sun. And security cameras.

He gave the teller a note, got some cash and took off on foot.

He's describes as "a black male, 24-25 years old, 5'7" to 5'8" tall, 140-160 pounds, slim build, with a dark complexion." It is unknown at this time whether he is still walking around with the towel over his face. Probably not, though.
