The FBI needs your help to find a man they've dubbed the 'Rasta Robber,' who they say robbed a bank inside a grocery store in west Houston Tuesday It was right around noon when FBI officials say a man wearing a wig with dreadlocks stood in line at the Wells Fargo Bank inside the Randall's store at 14,610 Memorial.

He was reportedly approached by a bank employee and walked off, returning shortly thereafter. He again stood in the teller line and was again approached by a bank employee, and again left the area, this time, say investigators, actually leaving the grocery store.

Moments later, investigators say he re-entered the banking area and approached a teller, handing over a note which claimed that he would shoot the teller if she didn't give him cash. He reportedly never showed a weapon and no one was physically hurt.

He was seen leaving the area on foot.
