Police Say Man Wearing Burka Robbed Maryland Bank

Similar incidents have already occurred in Britain and France. It was only a matter of time for it to occur in the U.S. As we've noted in the past, the burka or niqab is not an Islamic religious obligation. These garments are perfect costumes and also hide an individual's identity.

From the Associated Press:
Montgomery County police said a man wearing a burqa robbed a bank in Silver Spring. Police said the man who robbed a TD Bank branch on Briggs Chaney Road about 4:20 p.m. Tuesday was wearing a "long black burqa over his face." He also wore jeans and tan boots.

Authorities said the man showed a gun and demanded money. He took an undetermined amount of money and fled.

Police said the man spoke with what they described as "a Middle Eastern accent." They say a silver car, possibly a Chevrolet, was seen leaving the scene.

The FBI also is helping with the investigation.
