A man wearing a baseball cap, wig and sunglasses as a disguise robbed a bank in the Cape Winelands of an undisclosed sum of cash after threatening to blow it up.

However, the 53-year-old did not get far. He was arrested the next day about 20km from the scene.

Police spokesperson Capt FC van Wyk said a person entered the bank in High Street, Worcester, on Wednesday and allegedly made a bomb threat.

“The complainant was on duty when an unidentified male wearing a black chef apron, black baseball cap, black shirt, black wig and black sunglasses entered the bank.

“He threatened her and gave her an empty bag to put the money in,” said Van Wyk.

He escaped with cash but was arrested on Thursday in Rawsonville. 

“No injuries were reported,” said Van Wyk.

The suspect faces charges related to making a bomb threat and business robbery. He will appear in the Worcester magistrate’s court soon.
