Police said the man pictured here is suspected in the Saturday morning robbery of the Compass bank on I-10 West near Boerne Stage Road.

Employees told police the man walked into the bank carrying a briefcase and approached a teller.  The teller said the man opened the briefcase, pointed a gun at her, and told her to look inside.  She told police there was a note taped inside the case that read, "This is a robbery."
