The FBI Dallas Division is urgently seeking the public’s help to identify a suspect who brought a small child with him to a bank robbery in Fort Worth.

The incident occurred around 2:10 p.m. on June 6 at the Texas First Convenience Bank located within the Walmart on Anderson Boulevard.

According to the FBI report, the alleged robber had a child seated in a shopping cart with him as he approached a bank teller and presented a note demanding cash. After successfully obtaining an undisclosed sum of money from the bank, the suspect fled the scene while carrying the little girl in his arms.

Authorities described the suspect as a white male, likely between the ages of 35 and 45, standing at a height of 5’7 to 5’9, with an overall thin build. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a white and brown baseball hat, black sunglasses, a multicolored “fishing shirt,” khaki-colored cargo shorts, and “Hey Dude” brand shoes, according to the FBI’s published description of the suspect.

The FBI is leading the investigation in collaboration with local law enforcement. The bureau has issued a plea to the public, urging anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity or whereabouts to come forward.

Individuals with information about the suspect can contact the FBI Dallas Division at 972-559-5000 or submit tips anonymously via the bureau’s website at

In Dallas, robberies have been a persistent issue, with the City clocking more than 1,000 incidents this year as of June 13, according to the City of Dallas crime analytics dashboard. While a decline in robberies of individuals has brought the overall number down compared to last year, there has been a pronounced spike in business robberies. Such crimes increased by more than 20% compared to the same period in 2023.

According to a 2024 FBI crime statistics report examined by CoveSmart, the national robbery rate is 86 robberies per 100,000 people. In Texas, this number is slightly higher at 98 robberies per 100,000 individuals.

An ongoing shortage of police officers has hindered efforts to fight crime in Dallas. The Dallas Police Department (DPD) has around 3,000 officers, even though a City report advised about 4,000 officers for a City of its size. Additionally, City officials only budgeted $654 million in taxpayer money for DPD this fiscal year, considerably less than other high-crime jurisdictions like Chicago and New York City spend on public safety.

As reported by The Dallas Express, monthly comparative studies by the Metroplex Civic & Business Association indicate that criminal activity in Downtown Dallas far outpaces that found in Fort Worth’s city center. A specialized police unit and private security teams patrol Fort Worth’s downtown area.
