Man in drag attempts to rob Lincoln Park bank

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A big man in drag tried to rob a Lincoln Park bank Saturday, but quickly gave up and fled empty-handed.

Wearing a flowered blouse and "lots of lip gloss," the man entered the Wells Fargo branch in the 300 block of Euclid Avenue around 3:15 p.m., said San Diego police Sgt. Ray Battrick.

He handed the teller a demand note but the teller did not comply, Battrick said, and the would-be robber left empty-handed.

He was described as a black male in his 20s, between 5 feet 10 and 6 feet tall, weighing between 170 and 175 pounds, wearing a white hat, sunglasses and a flowered shirt and carrying a black backpack with the initials SWC in purple.
