A Missouri man who twice dressed as a woman to hold up a northeastern Kansas bank is going to prison for 37 months.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 20-year-old Joshua Parker, of Kansas City, Mo., was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty
earlier this year to two counts of bank robbery.

Parker's disguise included a woman's wig and dark sunglasses when he entered a U.S. Bank branch in Prairie Village last Oct. 21,
jumped on the counter and said, "I'm back." A teller recognized him as the same wig-wearing person who robbed the bank two months

Police chased a getaway car for a few blocks before Parker got out. He ran through a residential neighborhood wearing only shorts and socks before being arrested in a creek bed.
