A Salinas man dressed in woman’s clothing was arrested early Monday after he allegedly held up a Monterey gas station.

Police said Michael Leslie Clouse, 26, of Salinas, was arrested on a charge of suspicion of armed robbery and held without bail for alleged parole violations.

Police said a robber described as an unshaven white man, wearing a black wig, a black evening dress, fishnet stockings, calf-high boots and carrying a black purse, entered the USA gas station at 2338 Del Monte Ave., shortly before 1:15 a.m., drew a handgun and demanded money, then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
