TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ A man wearing a woman's wig and a dress robbed a bank with a bundle he claimed was a bomb, Tulsa police said.

Shortly after noon on Wednesday, a man who was described as olive-skinned and wearing a summer dress walked up to a teller, said he had a bomb and demanded money, police Sgt. Troy Rogers said.

``He was carrying a blanket like you would have an infant wrapped up in,'' Rogers said.

Rogers said the teller put an undisclosed amount of money into a bag the robber provided.

Witnesses said the robber had a mustache and wore a wig that hung just below his earlobes. He also wore a brown or tan suede coat and high-topped shoes.
