The San Antonio Police Department and Crime Stoppers have requested the public's help to identify a man who robbed a bank in Leon Springs.

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." 

She said the man demanded money and told her there was another man with a rifle waiting outside the bank.  The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the man ran out the front door.  He escaped in a tan truck.

According to employees, the man had been inside the bank the day before the robbery, posing as a customer.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest.  The number to call is 210-224-STOP (7867).  Callers may remain anonymous.
