Man Robs Bank Wearing 'Captain America' Villain Mask, Is Captured by Jewish Patrol Team

Red Slkull maskStraight from the “almost too bizarre to be true” file comes this bit of movie-related crime news…

Brooklyn resident Kevin Crawford was attempting to rob his third bank – and it was a smashing success, until the would-be robber exited the financial institution in his Captain America-inspired Red Skull mask and ran into a patrol of Hasidic Jews. Where was Captain America?

The Borough Park Shomrim spotted Crawford after he’d absconded with $8,000. They followed and then captured Crawford a short time later. This wasn’t the man’s first bank robbery, either – he’d previously made off with $2,000 from another bank. No word on what mask he wore for that one.

One word of advice – if you’re going to rob a bank in an area where there’s a patrol team made up of Hasidic Jews, you might not want to wear the mask of a comic book and movie character based on the Nazis of World War II. Parading around as Red Skull doesn't exactly scream "keeping a low profile" in those circumstances. 

Needless to say, while this is a cool story we somehow doubt that it will be used to plot a new Captain America movie.
