The comically named 'man hands bandit' has struck again, King5.com is reporting.

The FBI say a male bank robber dressed as a woman passed a note demanding cash to a teller today at the 1st Security Bank in Edmonds.

A similarly dressed suspect robbed Kitsap Credit Union in Poulsbo last Monday while wearing a wig and a woman's pantsuit.

The man fled with a second suspect, a woman, who was waiting outside the Poulsbo bank in a vehicle believed to be a late-90s, blue Geo Metro hatchback.

The robber was named in reference to television's "Seinfeld," in an episode of which Jerry dates a woman with "man hands."
