Police are seeking a man who robbed a Killeen bank Monday afternoon.

The man fled on foot after robbing the First National Bank Texas, in the 1000 block of North 38th Street, just before 1:30 p.m. Monday.

The robber is described as a light-skinned Hispanic male, 5-foot-10 or 5-foot-11, weighing 165 to 175 pounds, with a shaved head with stubble.

He wore a black T-shirt with white writing and an unknown character on the front, a white undershirt, long jean shorts, white ankle socks and black and white flip-flops, according to a press release from the Killeen Police Department.

Witnesses told police the man entered the bank lobby and walked around for a few minutes before approaching a teller. He then gave the teller a note demanding money and fled the bank on foot north through a parking lot.

KPD detectives and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to investigate the incident.

This is the second reported bank robbery this year in Killeen.

Police are asking anyone who can identify the robber to call Crime Stoppers at (254) 526-TIPS (8477), go online to www.killeencrimestoppers.com or text the word "Killeen" along with the tip to 274637. Police are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest.
