Androgynous Person Robs Bank with Crossbow

2/9/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's like a real life Robin Hood -- some schmuck in Finland robbed from the rich (a bank) and gave to the poor (itself) and did it all with a spring-loaded bow and arrow.

Crossbow and Bank

And there's another catch: Cops are unsure if the suspect, who's still at large, is a man or a woman. Officials in Finland tell TMZ the suspect was dressed like a woman ... but spoke like a man.

One thing's for sure -- it sure takes balls to rob a bank in broad daylight with medieval weaponry.

FYI: It seems the scheme worked -- the robber reportedly got away with the equivalent of around $6800 in cash.

"Why does the guy in the back look so calm? IS this a before or after robbery pic?"

Why, he's a Finn. :-) The robber is going away and didn't hurt the clerk, so why panic? Seems to be pressing the alarm button.

Whether the robber is man or woman is no problem for writing about him/her in Finnish, since we only have one personal pronoun (hän) for both sexes.
