Houston police are currently looking for two men who were seen on video attacking a man and stealing his bags full of cash in broad daylight.
The robbery on August 16 – or known as bank jugging – occurred at a collection of over 60 medical institutions near the city’s downtown,
near the Texas Medical Center, KHOU reported.
Bank jugging is when thieves watch for potential victims who may have cash, follow them, and then rob or burglarize them.
The victim, seen in the video, had just pulled out cash from a nearby bank and pulled into a parking lot when he was ambushed by two men as he was getting out of his truck, the surveillance video released on Wednesday shows.
The robbers pushed him to the ground and struck him on the head before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash in a Toyota sedan, the Houston Chronicle reported.
It was unclear if the victim was injured and Police did not say how much cash was stolen.
