MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Police say a man dressed in a shoulder-length black wig, sunglasses, a skirt and short boots is accused of robbing a bank in Marietta on Halloween.

Marietta police tell The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( that the suspect entered a BB&T bank on Sandy Plains Road around 1 p.m. and handed the teller a note.

Police Officer David Baldwin said the man claimed to have a gun. He was given an unspecified amount of money and was last seen running behind the bank.

Police described the suspect as a skinny male who didn't fool anyone with the female disguise.

Baldwin said he "ran like a man" when he left the bank.
