TAYLOR – Police are looking for a woman who allegedly robbed a bank with a note threatening harm to “all U.S. citizens.”

Security cameras at Monroe Bank & Trust, 7146 Pelham, captured images of a woman entering the bank at 9:45 a.m. June 23.

The woman – described as “possibly Arabic” by city officials – wore a black, patterned scarf and was described as being about 5 feet 4 inches tall. After loitering in the lobby until other customers left, the woman approached a teller and presented two notes written on bank forms.

“Give me all your 100s and 50s,” one note read. “I have a bomb and will blow up all U.S. citizens.”

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash. The woman left and was last seen in a light-colored grey or silver car that was parked on a nearby side street. Video images indicated a second person was waiting in the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Taylor police at 734-287-6611.
