Police are looking for someone disguised as an aging rocker who robbed a bank in Wolcott on Thursday afternoon at gunpoint.

The man walked into Sovereign Bank in Wolcott at 3:44 p.m., carrying two guns and wearing makeup, a wig with long frizzy hair, a mustache and sunglasses.

He told employees and customers to move to the vault, yelled, swore and told customers to cooperate or he would "blow their heads off," police said.

He also asked the bank manager to open the vault. After getting cash, he fled.

Police found the man’s vehicle, but he ran off into the woods. Police have not yet located him.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wolcott Police Department at 203-879-1414.
