It may sound like something out of a comic book, but it's for real. Police in New York City are hunting for a robber who wears an unusual disguise: a cat mask, CBS News Station WCBS-TV in New York reports.

An unidentified woman wearing the unusual outfit was caught on surveillance tape robbing a shoe store.

The robber passed a note to the clerk claiming she had a gun and wanted cash.

She made off with $66.

The next day, the "cat burglar" struck again, this time robbing $500 from a beauty shop.
