Male disguised as woman robs Somerset bank
SOMERSET, Mass. -- He robbed the bank as a she.
A man disguised as an elderly woman, wearing face paint and an ensemble that included a knit hat covered with a multicolored kerchief and a tan knee-length trench coat with a belt, went into Citizen's Union Bank just after 1 p.m. today and walked out with an undisclosed amount of money, the police said in a news release.
The man, who also wore glasses during the robbery at 921 Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Highway bank branch, handed the teller a note indicating he had a gun and would use it if he did not get what was in the cash drawer.
Minutes later, the robber was out the door and may have gotten into a dark green Volkswagen convertible driven by a white female. The police said the female driver was described as being her in 20s, wearing sunglasses and having long brown hair in a ponytail.
