FBI Seeking 'Cross-Dressing' Bank Bandit

The FBI is searching for the person who robbed a suburban Chicago bank wearing a large pink sun hat and a pink-and-black dress.

And authorities say he accessorized his outfit with long white gloves and a black metal handgun.

The gunman FBI agents are calling the Cross-Dressing Bandit held up the MB Financial Bank branch in Park Ridge on August 13.

Today, Special Agent Robert Grant asked the public for help in the search.

The FBI made public a wanted poster with photos of the bandit standing at a teller window in his unusual outfit.

The FBI says the robber had an employee place cash in a plastic shopping bag, then herded two bank workers and a customer into a restroom where he used plastic zip ties to bind their hands.
