A bearded man who dressed as a woman, had no luck in evading police after robbing a bank, police in Massachusetts said.

The Massachusetts State Police said that they arrested the 25-year-old man of Everett on Thursday afternoon, in connection with the robbery at U.S. Alliance Federal Credit Union.

Jobe Dimanche was at his house located on Hawthorn Street, when he was taken into custody. He was charged with armed robbery, failure to stop for a police officer and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

During the robbery, Dimanche was wearing a long wig, gray dress and denim jacket. He entered the bank located at 1032 Eastern Avenue shortly after 10:00 a.m., and passed a note to a teller demanding money.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. When officers arrived at the home, the suspect was not wearing the wig and skirt, but the items were recovered at the home.
