A woman wearing underwear on her head robbed an Oklahoma McDonald's restaurant and remained at large as authorities sought to identify her, police said on Wednesday.

Authorities said a surveillance video shows a middle-aged woman, wearing black pants and a black shirt, gloves, and a blond wig walking up to a McDonald's drive-through window.

The woman has what appears to be a pair of men's underwear wrapped around her face and held in place with paper clips, according to Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes. Midwest City is a suburb of Oklahoma City.

She reached inside the drive-through window when employees had stepped away for a moment, slid open a cash register drawer apparently using a key and took an undisclosed sum of money.

"It was pretty brazen. There were employees inside the business when all this was going on," Clabes told Reuters.

Clabes said the video was being aired on local television and authorities hope someone will be able to identify the woman. The robbery happened at 3 a.m. local time on Tuesday.

"You see a lot of things...but this is one of the stranger ones we've seen," Clabes said.
