The note came with a wig.

A man wearing a wig is wanted by police after robbing a downtown San Francisco bank on Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.

The coiffured crook entered a bank on the 300 block of Clay Street at 1:18 p.m. and handed a note to a bank teller, the newspaper reported. The teller handed over an unspecified amount of cash and then departed, according to police.

No description of the wig -- curly? red? powdered? -- is available, but the robber is described as a white man, between the ages of 25 and 30, with "facial stubble and dirty fingernails, and... wearing a backwards black-and-white baseball cap, sunglasses, a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and dark shoes," the newspaper reported.

Police are asking any member of the public with information to phone the department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
