The Texas City office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is seeking the public's assistance in identifying a man who fooled no one as he donned women's clothing to rob the Texas Gulf Credit Union, 2015 North Fulton Street in Wharton on Wednesday. According to the FBI, at approximately 1:45pm, what appeared to be a tall black female entered the bank, pointed a snub-nosed revolver at a teller and demanded cash. Witnesses describe the robber as actually being a black male with dark complexion, 6'0" to 6'1" tall, 180-190 pounds, mid-twenties, with a deep voice, large hands and large feet. He was wearing a black wig with blonde highlights, a dark sweater, short pants, athletic shoe, and press-on French manicured fingernails.

The robber fled with the cash, and a small silver sedan was seen leaving the bank shortly after the robbery. It has not been positively determined if that vehicle is connected to the crime.

If you have information about this robbery, please call the Houston office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 713-693-5000.
