A man robbed a bank wearing a woman's blond wig, fake breasts under a sweater and clown trousers, authorities in Pennsylvania, US, said.

Swissvale police said 48-year-old Dennis Hawkins was sitting in a parked car covered in red dye from an exploding packet in a bag of money when he was arrested on Saturday.

Police Chief Greg Geppert said Hawkins robbed the bank at gunpoint, using a toy BB gun he had shoplifted from a store.

Hawkins then entered a woman's car. She got out, took her keys and alerted police. Hawkins was found sitting in the car.

He is being held on bail.
