Who wears a poncho on a brilliantly sunny day? A bank robber.

A Lake View bank was robbed of over $1,000 this afternoon by a man who implied he had a weapon, according to police and a witness.

Officers were tipped off around 12:15PM by multiple alarm triggers at the Fifth Third bank, located at 640 W. Diversey between Jamba Juice and the Days Inn entrance.

The FBI is describing the offender as a white man in his late 40’s to 50’s with gray hair. He’s about 6-feet tall and was last seen wearing an orange rain poncho and sunglasses as he headed northbound on Clark Street.

CPD case HX374924.
