On Thursday, February 20, 2014, at approximately 7:00 AM, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the Wells Fargo bank, near the intersection of Research Forest and Kuykendahl Road. A reportee advised he heard a scream near the bank and then witnessed an armed male enter the bank with a dark colored hoodie.
Reportedly two males brandishing handguns confronted bank employees as they were entering the bank to prepare for business. The armed males escorted the employees into the bank and demanded money. The employees complied with the actors demands and one of the actors attempted to leave the bank through the front lobby doors. A responding unit that was arriving at the location confronted this suspect. The suspect fled on foot and a foot pursuit ensued. The suspect was subdued a short distance away. The second suspect reportedly fled on foot out of another exit at the location.
An active search is currently being conducted on the second suspect. Multiple agencies are on location involved in the search including support from Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Canine and Department of Public Safety Air Support.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Major Crime Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators are on scene. The investigation is on-going and no injuries were reported.
The suspect that is being sought is described as a heavy set black male, last seen wearing a black hoodie, a black bandana, dark dickie style pants, and was wearing black and white gloves.
