    A man in Houston decided to rob a bank while a choir peacefully sang holidays songs in the lobby.

    Some bank robbers pick the oddest times to strike. Take a man in Houston, who decided to rob a business while a choir peacefully sang holidays songs in the lobby.

    A crowd had gathered in the bank to listen to the choir. Tellers multi-tasked, taking in the music and assisting customers. That’s when the robber struck.

    He approached the counter and handed over a note to the worker. He then verbally demanded money. He was able to get away with the cash completely unscathed.

    The choir members had no idea what was going on during the crime, but shortly thereafter the performance was halted as police authorities arrived on scene to investigate. Cops have since nicknamed the robber "Ebenezer Scrooge".

    Surveillance footage of the man was just released. Investigators believe he is in his 30s, with a medium build, weighing approximately 170 pounds. At the time of the crime, the man was wearing a black knit hat, a light colored long sleeve shirt and dark pants.

    Anyone who recognizes the suspect is urged to contact Crimestoppers right away.
