Police Searching for Male Armed Suspect Dressed as Woman

Perkins Police are investigating a robbery after a man dressed as a female entered a local business with a handgun Wednesday evening.

Police reported that the robbery occurred around 7:30 p.m. when the suspect entered the Family Dollar dressed as a female carrying a black pistol.

According to the release, the suspect was wearing a gray shirt, long tan pants and black heels. The suspect also had a brownish-red wig and a small mustache.

The clerk told officers that the suspect entered the store and went directly to the register where he demanded money. He fled eastbound on foot with an undisclosed amount of money following the robbery.

Police also believe the suspect is responsible for robberies that took place in Stillwater. Those took place at the On Cue and the Git-N-Galup.

The City of Perkins Police Department is urging anyone spotting someone similar to the person in the photo to call 911.
