Cross-dressing robber arrested on L.I.
LYNBROOK, New York (WABC) -- Police on Long Island say they have arrested a cross-dressing armed robber who held up a stationery store Thursday.
A pink jumpsuit may be funny, but the crime is anything but.
Even though this robber is dressed like a woman, police say he was packing a pistol in his purse.
Surveillance video shows the cross dressing robber walking into the "C and R Stationery Store" at around 1:30 Thursday afternoon.
He was wearing a pink jumpsuit and carrying a white purse.
He pointed a handgun at the clerk, but when she couldn't open the register the robber grabbed a gatorade and took off on a woman's bike.
