Now here’s an interesting disguise.

The FBI today released this surveillance photo of a man who robbed a Bellevue bank last Tuesday.

The robbery occurred at around 1:20 p.m. at the Washington Federal Savings Bank at 150th Ave. S.E. One witness thought the robber may have been armed with a handgun, but no gun was seen in surveillance photos, the FBI said.

The robber’s head was wrapped with what appeared to be cloth, the FBI said. Witnesses described him as being about 5-feet-10 to 6 feet tall.

Anyone with information on the robber is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $1,000  if the information leads to an arrest and criminal charges.
