SURREY, B.C. — Mounties in Surrey, B.C., say they are searching for a man who wore a “peculiar disguise” to rob a bank.

RCMP say the robbery happened on the evening of Dec. 29, when a man dressed as a woman walked into a branch near the Guildford Town Centre.

Police describe the man as Asian and say he donned a patterned dress, white wool sweater, a long blond, curly wig and a pink toque pulled down to his eyebrows.

Mounties say the man escaped on foot, and they haven’t been able to identify him.

Investigators would like to speak to anyone who has information that could help track the suspect.
