FORT WORTH -- Two military men and two other bystanders took down a bank robber Friday after he tried to carjack two women outside a Wells Fargo bank in far north Fort Worth.
Police arrested Larry Don Enos, 57, who has served prison time for drugs, burglary and robbery, in connection with the hold-up at the Wells Fargo Bank.
At 11:30 a.m. a man wearing a wig and a fake beard and mustache walked into the bank, pointed a revolver at a teller and said: "This is a robbery. I want the money from the drive-through and the money from the cash registers."
After the robber received the cash, he told the bank employee, "You are going to drive me out of here."
When the teller told the robber that he couldn't leave the robber ordered the employee to give him his car keys the teller handed over the keys and the robber walked out of the bank.
Outside the robber tried to carjack a woman in the parking lot but, for unknown reasons, was unsuccessful. The robber then went to a second woman's car stopped in the drive-through ATM and tried to carjack her.
The woman asked the robber whether she could get the kids out of the car first and, while the robber was standing there, two Army guys apparently made their move.
They come over and tackle him and take the gun away from him.
The men who are believed to be in the Army Reserve or are retired, were joined by two other men, who helped hold the robber until police arrived.
