The man the FBI has dubbed the 'Billy Goat Bandit' may have struck again, but this time, things were a little different. On Friday at around noon, a man the FBI believes is the 'Billy Goat Bandit' walked into the Kroger at 569 South Mason Road in Katy and approached the First Convenience Bank inside. He reportedly demanded money and two tellers complied.

The suspect then left the bank and got into what witnesses say was a late 90s model maroon Ford Taurus with someone else inside driving, and the two of them got away.

The 'Billy Goat Bandit' got his nickname because of the unique straggly beard with extra long chin hair he sported in previous robberies. However, in Friday's robbery, the man the FBI believes is the 'Billy Goat Bandit' was clean shaven.

The "Billy Goat Bandit" is described as a black male, 25-30 years old, standing 5'10"- 5'11" tall, with an average build. He had a dark complexion and was clean shaven. He wore a dark baseball cap with a white bill, a dark shirt, dark pants, and a light blue fleece jacket.

The FBI suspects the "Billy Goat Bandit" in at least 11 other Houston area robberies from October 16 through Friday.

A $15,000 reward is being offered for information which leads to the charging and arrest of the 'Billy Goat Bandit.' If you have information about the suspect, you're asked to call the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000.
