SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) - Police have released surveillance images of a wanted man dubbed the “Mrs. Doubtfire” bandit because he was disguised as a woman during a bank robbery in California.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1akHaNf ) the suspect was seen acting suspiciously Friday inside a US Bank branch in Santa Cruz.

He wore a wavy blond wig, thick-framed glasses and navy blue hospital scrubs, and carried a purse.

About an hour later, the same man in the same outfit handed a teller a note that demanded money at a second US Bank branch in Santa Cruz.

The suspect got away with an unknown amount of money.

Investigators say no weapon was seen, and nobody was hurt.

Police dubbed the man “Mrs. Doubtfire,” after the 1993 movie in which Robin Williams pretended to be a woman.
