— Fayetteville police are trying to identify a man who robbed a CVS pharmacy on Saturday while wearing a pink dress.

Surveillance video shows the man walking into the store at 404 Ramsey St. with a towel or scarf wrapped around his head. He then walks up to the counter, holds out a tan bag and threatens an employee to hand over money. After the money is placed in the bag, he runs away, authorities said.

The man is described as 30 to 40 years old, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall with a medium build.

Anyone who recognizes the man or has information about the robbery is asked to call Fayetteville police detectives at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).

    "....and 6 feet tall with a medium build."

    Is that a medium male or medium female build?

    As long as it doesn't get any slower than your brain. And just how would they be putting Durham out of business? Go look for a job!

    How do they know for certain that it's a man???

    And..."Anyone who recognizes the man..."

    How in the world is anyone possibly going to recognize them in that get-up?

    that's ONE way to make the cashier forget your face.

    He didn't have a weapon, both hands were up to his face. I would have been laughing so hard that I would not have been able to put money in a paper bag. 6 feet tall with a pink dress on, he should be arrested for assault on the vision of the public!
