Police in Indiana are looking for a pair of armed bank robbers that were dressed as Youngblood Priest from Super Fly and funk singer Rick James.
A man threw on a Rick James wig and robbed a bank in Indiana on Saturday, alongside an accomplice dressed as Priest from the Blaxploitation classic “Super Fly.”
According to local reports, the throwback bandits hit up an Indiana Members Credit Union in their disguises and demanded money from the tellers. After being handed an undisclosed amount of money, the pair absconded in an unknown direction, according to eyewitnesses.
Both men are still on the loose.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department released descriptions of the suspects, describing the first man, dressed as Youngblood Priest, as wearing a black hat, with “long hair, sunglasses, [and] all-black clothing.”
The other man, dressed up as the late funk crooner, was described as “5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches with long dreads.”
Police ask anyone with information about these suspects to call the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at (317) 595-4000 or Crime Stoppers of Indiana at (317) 262-TIPS (8477).
