Local bank robbed with a twist

Missouri City police are looking for a man who reportedly abducted a pregnant woman and held her son hostage in order to force her to rob a bank.

Last Friday, shortly after noon, Missouri City police responded to a robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank in the 2400 block of Texas Parkway. Information given to responding officers was that the suspect appeared to be a pregnant woman, in a gray dress.

As officers were beginning their initial investigation, dispatchers at the police department received a 911 call from a woman who told police she had been present during the robbery. “When police responded at Eastfield and Meadowview, she told an officer that she had been forced to commit the robbery,” said Missouri City Police Detective Russell Terry.

When officers arrived on that scene, they were met by a woman who said she was 8 months pregnant and had been at the robbery. She explained to authorities that she and her young son, 3 years old, were approached by a man in the parking lot of the Fiesta Mart in the 1500 block of Independence Boulevard. Terry said, “She told police the man forced them at gunpoint into her SUV and ordered them to drive to the bank.” The woman told police she complied. She drove to the Wells Fargo Bank and went inside and demanded money from the teller, as instructed, while the man held her young son hostage, at gunpoint, in the car.

Once the woman returned to her car and handed over the cash, according to police, the gunman had the woman drive to Meadowview and Eastfield in Missouri City. The man ran from the car and the woman called police and reported the incident.

The man is described as a 6-foot-tall black male wearing a stocking cap and a white and black shirt said authorities.
