BOYSTOWN: Woman Robs TCF Bank

Hey, lady! You’re supposed to hold the note in the hand that has the glove!

A Boystown bank was robbed by a woman who claimed to have a gun Wednesday afternoon according to the FBI and Chicago police.

A person of interest was being questioned late Wednesday night, but no charges were filed.

Cops say the woman presented a note saying “Give me your money because I have a gun,” at TCF bank inside of Jewel-Osco at 3531 N. Broadway around 12:56PM.

The FBI describes the offender as a shorter black woman in her 30’s. She wore a large floppy hat, sunglasses, and a green shirt.
