The FBI wants your help to identify two armed men who robbed a Compass Bank Monday, one of whom they've dubbed the 'Hungry Bandit.' It happened at the bank on 12,514 Tomball Parkway around 10:30am. One of the men pulled out a shotgun, and forced a customer and a bank employee to the ground. He stood guard over the bank while the other man approached the tellers and pulled out his handgun.

While pointing his pistol at the tellers, he demanded cash, and then proclaimed "I'm only doing this to eat. They're not letting me work!"

The suspect stashed the cash into a small black nylon bag which he had carried into the bank. No one was physically hurt during the robbery.

The robbers were last seen getting into to a tan, gray or silver 4-door Chrysler model sedan with custom rims.

The robber who was armed with the handgun is described as a black male in his thirties, approximately 5'6"- 5'8"tall with a medium build. He wore a fake black beard and mustache during the robbery. He also wore a navy, short-sleeved Tommy Hillfiger T-shirt with "Tommy Sports" written on the front of it. He wore dark sunglasses and carried a small black nylon bag into the bank to carry the cash.

The robber who was armed with the shotgun is described as a black male in his twenties, approximately 6'3"-6'4" tall with a thin build. He wore a dark colored "hoodie" and sunglasses during the robbery.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000.00 for information leading to the charging and arrest of these robbers. If you have information about this case, please call the Crime Stoppers tip line at 713-222-TIPS or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
