Just after 8:00 am this morning, prior to lobby hours, the Prosperity Bank located at 1430 Research Forest Drive was robbed. A male dressed in all black, wearing a hoodie and a mask resembling that from the movie “Scream,” forced an employee at gunpoint into the bank as they arrived for work. The suspect got away with cash and fled on foot across Research Forest. Shenandoah Police immediately responded to the scene and searched the area for the suspect, without success.
The male is described as tall, 6’1” to 6”3”, weighing 170lbs to 190lbs, with a soft voice, and armed with a medium frame, black, semi-automatic pistol. There is no vehicle description or video footage of the suspect available at this time.
Shenandoah Police will be increasing patrol activities at all of our local banks, and as always, offer to escort employees to and from the parking areas prior to and after the close of business each workday.
If you have any information concerning this crime, please contact Detective Sergeant James Hulse at 281-367-8952. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Montgomery County Crime Stoppers at 800-392-7867.
