When robbing a bank is literally 'Risky Business'

Police in Memphis, Tennessee, are looking for a man who robbed a bank Monday dressed as Tom Cruise's character in "Risky Business."

According to HLN affiliate WMCTV, the robber was wearing sunglasses and a sports coat when he quietly demanded money from a bank teller at a SunTrust bank inside of a Kroger grocery store. Police say the man only implied that he had a weapon.

Mark Shepherd was shopping in the grocery store on Monday at the time of the robbery and was completely unaware of the situation. Shepherd told WMCTV that he "walked out and there were police cars everywhere and I had to come up [and] ask what happened."

The suspect may have robbed three other bank branches in the area. Police have not officially said the robberies are related, but the man who robbed the other banks was wearing a similar outfit and had the same getaway car.
