And by someone wearing a burqa no less:

A woman walked into a Brandywine Hundred bank this morning and held up the teller, state police said.
The bandit entered Artisans Bank at 1706 Marsh Road about 10:40 a.m., and approached the teller with a demand note, implying she was armed.
The teller handed over an undisclosed sum of cash, and the woman left the bank.
The woman was in what appeared to be an all-black burqa, with her head and face partially covered, police said.
Anyone with information on her identity is asked to call Troop 2 detectives at (302) 834-2620, ext. 4.
I stopped at a neighboring bank 20 minutes afterward. At the time a single state police cruiser was parked out front. None of the tellers knew what was up – or at least they claimed to not know what was going on when an elderly gentleman asked about the police cruiser next door.
By the time I had left the bank, there were two police cruisers, a crime scene van and two middle-aged guys wearing glasses and ties that screamed “FBI”.
