Teen Crossdresser Admits to Bank Robbery

Share on Nextdoor


A 17-year-old boy admitted to assisting in a November bank robbery yesterday, but this was no simple heist.

Just a few of the bizarre details: The teen felt forced to rob the bank with his friend, 28-year-old Dezmon Lawrence. How so? Lawrence suggested boosting cash from a bank and the teen flatly turned him down, allegedly. The 28-year-old role-model-of-the-year then assaulted the teen until he gave in and agreed to participate in the criminal endeavor.

Also, the duo dressed up as girls to hide their identities, borrowing clothes from Lawrence's girlfriend.

Also also, the teen turned himself in a few days after the robbery.
