The FBI is investigating two Lakeview bank robberies that were reported hours apart on Thursday.
In the first robbery, a man walked into the BMO Harris Bank at 3601 North Halsted at 10:56AM and handed the teller a note in which he implied that he was armed.
Police describe the robber as a black man in his mid-30’s who stands about 5’11” tall and has a medium build. He wore a blue “LA Dodgers” baseball hat, a black jacket, blue jeans, and red shoes.
