The FBI says a bank in Norman has been robbed for the second time in seven days, this time by a man dressed as a woman.

Rick Raines with the Oklahoma City division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation tells FOX 25 the Arvest on West Lindsay Lane was robbed just before 1:00 PM Friday.

According to the FBI, just after noon on Friday, a man dressed as a woman entered the bank and walked up to the teller with a note that said he had a gun and demanded money. The teller complied and handed over an unknown amount of money which the man put in a burgundy handbag.

Raines says just last Friday, September 20, a woman walked into the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money but left without any cash.

No weapon was shown during the robbery and the man was last seen running east from the bank.

He's described as a white man in his mid 30s, 5'11" – 6'2", 175-195 lbs., thin build, wearing a gray vest, long sleeve gray and turquoise shirt, blue jeans, shoulder length blonde wig, red lipstick, bright orange or pink running shoes and sunglasses, carrying a burgundy handbag.

The FBI and Norman Police are investigating the robbery. Anyone with information is urged to call (405)290-7770. The Oklahoma Bankers Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for robbing a member bank.
