Police in Florida are searching for a man who robbed a bank at gunpoint sporting a lacy pink sweater, fuzzy pink slippers, a big handbag in a large color-coordinated flower pattern — and a beard and mustache.
The suspect, shown in the surveillance photos below, entered the BNC Bank in Sebastian, Florida, on March 12, 2013, flashed a gun at the teller and demanded money. He left with a bag of cash, and hopped a nearby six-foot privacy fence, despite his questionable choice of footwear, eluding police.
Investigators theorize that the robber wore the clothes, not as an expression of his personal fashion sense, but to draw attention away from his face. They further theorize that he jettisoned the pink accessories as soon as he was out of sight. Good idea, except that he was not able to fool the surveillance cameras, which got a pretty good look at him.
The suspect, who is wanted for questioning by police, is described as a black male, early 20s, 5’9″ tall and weighing 140 lbs.
The suspect may or may not be armed, and may or may not be wearing bright garish colors.
