Police Hunting For Man Who Robbed Maryland Bank Disguised In Blackface

Police Hunting For Man Who Robbed Maryland Bank Disguised In Blackface

Police in the United States are on the hunt for a criminal who 'blacked up' his own face in order to disguise himself before robbing a bank.

The suspect painted his face in a bid to not be recognised, before walking into the bank in Maryland and approaching the counter of the PNC Bank in Perryville, Maryland.

Officers have identified the suspect as being - crucially - a white man in his late 20s or early 30s, wearing a white coat and a maroon hat, as you can clearly see.

You'd have to imagine that, were he any good at his chosen profession of robbing banks, he'd have removed the paint from his face by now.

The bank itself is in a small Maryland town that isn't far from the state border with Delaware. The suspect is said to have robbed the bank by passing a note to the cashier at about 1pm local time on Tuesday.

Police also suspect that the alleged bank robber is about five feet five inches tall.

He's still at large, too. Anyone with any information should contact the Perryville Police Department via their Facebook page.

The coppers have issued an appeal for anyone with news about this bizarre crime to come forward. They wrote: "We are seeking the public's help in identifying the below pictured subject.

"This subject is responsible for a bank robbery that occurred on January 28th at the PNC Perryville branch.

"Suspect is described as a white male, with paint on his face, approximately 5'0"-5'5" and late 20s to early 30s."

They could have added, he's also pretty thick. It's likely that someone who knows the culprit would recognise him with or without a load of black paint on his face.

That's before we get to the fact that it's downright racist.

Anyway, this isn't actually the stupidest bank robbery in recent memory, either.

One bungling thief in Australia recently committed what has to surely be the lamest attempted robbery of all time.

Busting into a shop in Clontarf back in June 2019, the guy obviously lost his nerve very quickly and bailed out after what must be less than 15 seconds.

Not that we'd advocate escalating the conflict, or crime of any kind at all, now you mention it, but it's a poor showing from the guy.

Afterwards, Queensland Police issued a statement that reads: "At 4.30am a man walked into the store and produced a red coloured bag and a knife threatening a 32-year-old male staff member.

"The man demanded cash however fled empty handed."
