Police: Male robber wore muumuu

Authorities in California said they are searching for a man who robbed two businesses while dressed in a Hawaiian muumuu.

San Jose police said the man wore the pink, long-sleeved gown with a white and purple floral pattern as well as a tan straw garden hat, white gloves and tan shoes when he robbed a payday loan store on Story Road in the city and again when he robbed a liquor store one week later on Snell Avenue, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.

Police said have been unable to get a good description of the man's features from witnesses, possibly because they were too distracted by his clothing to get a good look at his face.
