Police looking for man who robbed bank, credit union

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Authorities in Charlotte are looking for a man they say robbed a local bank and a local credit union, one while dressed as a woman, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

The first robbery happened May 9, at the State Employees Credit Union around 4:30 p.m.

Police say a man, dressed as a woman, handed the teller a note demanding money. He was given the money and left the scene.

In the first robbery the man was wearing a black dress with white polka dots, a black curly wig, pink bedroom slippers, and dark colored socks.

The second robbery occurred May 15, at the SunTrust Bank on Galleria Boulevard at approximately 2:15 p.m.. Officials say the robber passed the teller a note demanding money, received an undisclosed amount of money and ran away from the scene.

In the second robbery, he wore khaki pants, a white t-shirt, a brown baseball hat, and workman's boots.

From the surveillance photos you can see he had some type of tan wrap covering his left arm, perhaps to conceal a skin condition, tattoos, or other marks or scars, police said.

The robber is described as a black male, about 6', thin build, in his late 20's.

Call Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or FBI Charlotte at 704-672-6100 if you have any information to identify this subject.
