The excitement that accompanies any football season in Dallas, coupled with the opening of the mothership known as Cowboys Stadium, in Arlington, is seemingly permeating Dallas, and indeed pervading the lives of everyone in the greater North Texas area to some degree.
According to a report by the Little Elm Journal, alleged bank robbers are no exception to this rule.
Around 11 AM on Wednesday, two men walked into the PointBank in Little Elm and handed a female teller a note demanding money and threatening her life. The woman complied, and the men got away with an unspecified amount of money. One of the suspects, presumably when he's not (allegedly) committing felonies, enjoys watching the Dallas Cowboys play football.
"The man who handed the teller the note is described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic male, about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall," the report says. "He is thin to medium build, has short hair, mustache and goatee, and dark eyes. He was wearing a dark colored jacket or sweatshirt, eyeglasses, jeans and a Dallas Cowboys ball cap."
Aside from thoroughly throwing a wrench in my Dallas-isn't-such-a-bad-place argument from yesterday, the incident comes as the latest in a string of crimes allegedly perpetrated by nefarious 'Boys fans.
A Maryland man, and truly serious Cowboys fan, was convicted earlier this Summer of assault after firing several rounds into a car containing several people who had taunted him via phone calls and text messages during and after Dallas' 44-6 loss to Philadelphia last December.
In July, Michael Irvin avoided being carjacked after the perpetrators recognized him and opted, rather than robbing Irvin at gunpoint--presumably the original plan--to discuss the Cowboys' illustrious past with the former receiver.
