Police are looking for a tall man who wore a purple dress and an ivory-colored hood when he robbed a credit union in Pennsylvania.

Ferguson Township police said the man threatened to use a gun and a bomb if a teller refused to give him money, but did not display either object at SPE Federal Credit Union about 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police posted a picture from the bank's surveillance cameras on the department's Facebook page.

Police say bank employees were able to determine the suspect was a man about 6 feet tall. They are also investigating to see if bomb threats made on Tuesday at a Walmart and Penn State Research West in the area are linked to the heist.

Police didn't say how much money was stolen.
