The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating a robbery that occurred Tuesday afternoon at a Lady's Island bank.

Just after 1:30 p.m., deputies responded to a bank robbery at Regions Bank on 146 Sea Island Parkway. Employees advised that the bank had been robbed by a black male wearing women's clothing.

After stealing an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled the area leaving all unharmed.

The suspect is described as a black male of thin build, approximately 6'00", wearing a red dress, a wig with a black hat, and purple glitter lipstick. He was carrying a large, beach style bag, and may have fled the area on a bicycle.

The suspect did not brandish a weapon during the robbery, however, he should still be considered potentially armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372) or text the word TIPSC with a message to CRIMES (274637).
