'Red Skull' Bank Robber Busted in Borough Park

A weirdo robber dressed in a red skeleton mask and black gloves robbed several Brooklyn bank branches in Williamsburg and Fort Greene Tuesday and Wednesday last week, yelling, “Happy f--king Halloween!” and "Trick or treat, give up the cash or I will kill you, bitch motherf--ker," to the tellers.

Was he perhaps emulating Captain America's nemesis, the Red Skull? (If so, he should have read all the way to the end...)

Anyway, Red Skull guy was apprehended in Borough Park on Wednesday, not by Captain America, but by Jewish Shomrim volunteers, who surrounded and held him until the police arrived.

Under the red mask was Kevin Crawford, 20.
