RISING SUN, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police say a man who dressed as a woman and robbed a Cecil County bank has been arrested in Delaware.

Troopers say a person wearing a dress and a wig walked into the National Penn Bank in Rising sun about 4 p.m. Wednesday. Police say the robber gave a teller a note demanding cash and threatening to shoot employees, but did not show a weapon.
