Man dressed like woman robs Sacramento convenience store

SACRAMENTO — To paraphrase Aerosmith, dude looks like a very ugly lady.

Local authorities have release surveillance video images of a male suspect who dressed like a “red hat lady” before robbing a gas station’s convenience store in the 8900 block of Pocket Road last Tuesday night.

The unidentified suspect, described as an African American man in his early 20s, was wearing a pink hat, pink shirt, pink and black plaid skirt, and pink high heel shoes when he entered the convenience store the night of Sept. 14. The 5-10 male entered the store at 9:09 p.m. and robbed the clerk at gunpoint, taking cash from the register before fleeing on foot in his high heels.
