On Friday, December 27, 2013, at approximately 1:00 p.m., an unknown gunman entered the Prosperity Bank in the 200 block of N. McKinney Street, Sweeny, and robbed the bank at gunpoint.  The suspect displayed a silver revolver and demanded money.  Bank personnel complied with the robber's demands.  Nobody was injured during the robbery.


The police department does not release the amount of money stolen from bank robberies.


The suspect was a white male in his mid-30s, 5,6"-5'7" tall, weighing 150-170 pounds, with balding brown hair.  He was wearing a dark blue hoodie, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes.
