WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — State police say a woman wore pink and purple face paint while she robbed a bank inside a supermarket in Wilmington.

The robbery occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday at the Citizens Bank branch inside the Acme Supermarket on Limestone Road in Wilmington.

Police say the woman approached a teller and handed over a note demanding cash. The note implied that the woman was armed, although no weapon was seen.

The teller handed over some cash, and the robber fled on foot. Police say she was wearing a dark jacket and black baseball cap, in addition to the pink and purple face paint. Police are searching for the woman, who’s believed to be between 24 and 30 years old and 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-3 inches tall.
