CASH MONEY: Uptown Bank Robbed Saturday Morning


The Standard Bank and Trust at Broadway and Irving Park Road was robbed at 9:45 this morning by a man who told the teller “give me your money and nobody will get hurt.”

Witnesses say the offender fled westbound on Irving Park with about $2,500 cash in his hand. (Pro tip: Always bring a bag or other carrying vessel to your bank robbery.)

According to witnesses, the robber is a black man, possibly in his 30’s, wearing a black skull cap with white stripes, a bright red hoodie, khaki pants, and black Nikes with white soles.

No weapon was displayed. (CPD case HY243997)
