Police: Customer wrestled with bank robbery suspect

Eunice police are still searching for the man who robbed a bank Tuesday morning.

Officials say a Hispanic man wearing a blue bandana over his face held up the Basile State Bank branch at the corner of West Maple Avenue and College Drive.

Police now say that a customer inside the bank attempted to wrestle with and detain the suspect. The customer, investigators say, disarmed the man of what was thought to be a bomb and throw the device out the bank's front doors. Authorities later said that object was not an explosive.

Eunice police released these pictures of the suspect last night. If you know anything about this incident, call Eunice police at 337-457-6589.
