Police Looking For Tall Man In Purple Dress Who Robbed Bank

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Police are looking for a tall man who wore a purple dress and an ivory-colored hood when he robbed a credit union in Pennsylvania.

Ferguson Township police say the man threatened to use a gun and a bomb if a teller refused to give him money, but didn’t display either object at SPE Federal Credit Union about 4 p.m. Tuesday. Police posted a picture from the bank’s surveillance cameras on the department’s Facebook page.

Police do not know if Tuesday bomb threats at a Walmart and Penn State Research West in the area are linked to the heist.

Police haven’t said how much money was stolen.
