A man robbed a West Village bank dressed as a woman, police said last Friday. The wig-wearing bandit walked into a Chase bank branch on W 4th St near Seventh Ave. around 3:10 Pm on Thursday. He passed a note, claiming to have a homemade bomb and bank teller forked over $1,000 before the crook took off. While the man was dressed in women’s clothing, with a blue shoulder bag draped off his right arm, polices said that he made his demands in an unmistakably deep, masculine voice. Police released his pic Friday in hopes of identifying the brazen bank robber. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
