Search continues for Sherman bank robbery suspect

By  | 

SHERMAN,TX -- A man police say robbed a Sherman bank Tuesday morning is still on the loose.

We talked to a man who says he saw the suspect a short time after the Bank of Texas on West Washington St. was robbed around 9 a.m. Tuesday.

"It was odd the way he was doing, acted like he didn't know where he was going to me," said a witness.

This Sherman resident, who didn't want to be identified, lives just blocks from the bank that was robbed. He says he saw the suspect walking down the road a few minutes after it happened.

"I thought he was going to go to the house over there, but he changed his mind and went on."

Sherman Police and FBI arrived on the scene shortly after they got the call of a robbery around 9 a.m.

"A white male approximately 40-45 years of age had actually come inside the lobby there and had demanded money," Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said.

The suspect claimed he had a weapon. No one was hurt during the robbery. Police say the man left the bank walking northbound on nearby railroad tracks.

Hampton says the suspect was wearing a University of Texas t-shirt, a hat, glasses, and shorts.

"Somebody out in the public is going to recognize this guy, and we need to get him identified as quickly as possible so we can get him into custody." said Hampton.

This resident says he just hopes what he saw can help officers catch the alleged robber.

"Around here you never know who's going to do what. It's what struck my attention. I didn't know whether he'd be up to something or not."
