Boystown: Man Robs Third North Side Bank In 21 Days

A robber held up his third North Side bank in three weeks Friday afternoon, according to the FBI.

The man walked into the Boystown Jewel-Osco, 3531 North Broadway around 3:30 p.m. and presented a robbery note to a teller at the TCF Bank branch that’s located inside.

Witnesses said he fled from the store and jumped into a taxi cab heading north on Broadway.

The FBI describes the offenders as a white man between 25- and 35-years-old, 6-feet tall, 190 pounds with blonde facial hair. He was wearing a gray hoodie and khaki pants during Friday’s hold-up.

The same man robbed the TCF Bank inside of the Jewel-Osco store at 2940 North Ashland on March 30 and the TCF Bank located inside of the Jewel-Osco store at 4355 North Sheridan on March 24, the FBI said.

A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the robber. Tips can be shared with the Chicago FBI office at 312-421-6700.
