On Tuesday, a State Employees Credit Union (SECU) bank was robbed by a person dressed as Star Wars villain Darth Vader.
ABC News reported that the robbery took place around 11:45 a.m. and that the suspect was dressed in all black with a Darth Vader mask and armed with a rifle.
“Very highly unusual, highly unusual,” said Lt. Corey Copley of the Pineville Police to WCNC. “You see all kinds of disguises here and there, but this one in my experience is the most unusual.”
The thief reportedly sat outside the bank in an SUV for some time before entering the building and carrying out the robbery. Copley said the suspect’s choice of weapon was unusual as well.
“A small handgun would be the way to do it, but a long gun is definitely another rare situation in this case,” the detective explained.
Anyone with possible knowledge about the case is urged to contact the Pineville Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division at 704-889-2231.

Lawmaker Rashida Tlaib calls for boycott of Bill Maher’s ‘Real Time’ over Israel comments

This article first appeared on Salon.
"Maybe folks should boycott his show," Tlaib wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now."
WATCH: ‘Hero’ walks into middle of Proud Boys protest and says ‘f*ck you’ to each of them
A man became a hero to the internet over the weekend after he was captured on video saying "f*ck you" to members of a group of conservative protesters known as Proud Boys.
In a video that appeared to be from Saturday's protests in Portland, a man can be seen walking into a group of right-wing demonstrators.
"F*ck you," the man says, pointing at an apparent Proud Boys member.
"F*ck you," the man says again as he points at another member of the group.
The man then repeats the process over and over, pointing out a member of the Proud Boys each time. He did make an exception for a dog, which he described as "cool."
