Authorities say they have arrested a man who allegedly wore women’s clothing as he robbed a Smithtown bank on April Fool’s Day, and also charged him with intentionally driving into a police car while evading arrest.

According to the Suffolk County Police Department, 36-year-old Wesley Keene was arrested by officers from the Warrant Enforcement Section. The Coram resident allegedly entered the TD Bank on Nesconset Highway on the afternoon of April 1 and displayed a note saying he had a gun and demanded cash. The teller complied and the suspect fled west. At the time, police said the robber’s getaway vehicle was possibly light-colored.

On April 24, police said, Keene attempted to evade officers and intentionally drove his car into a police vehicle.

In addition to third-degree robbery, the defendant was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving.

Keene was listed as defending himself on the New York State court system’s online database and could not be reached for comment.
