The man accused of robbing a Greenville bank while wearing a wig was arrested after police said they found him at a local hospital.

Greenville police said an unidentified, disguised man entered the TD Bank at 2303 Augusta St. about 2 p.m. and showed the teller a note demanding money.

The man was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled the bank without being located, officers said.

Investigators said forensic technicians found a palm print from the teller area where the robbery occurred and they were able to identify the suspect.
