  • June 24, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh police are searching for a bank robber who wore a pink shirt and pink pajama bottoms, and topped off his disguise with a skeleton mask and a black wig.

Police said the robbery happened about 1 p.m. Monday at the Huntingdon Bank branch in the city’s Carrick neighborhood.

The suspect was speaking to someone on a cellphone during the heist, likely a getaway driver.

Police said the suspect also was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and stuffed the loot into a black purse. Police said a dye pack in the money exploded. Witnesses said the man appeared to be somewhat soiled even before he entered the bank. Police said he also was wearing a black apron and white athletic shoes, both of which were spattered with grease.
