A lone bank robber has struck twice in two days, the FBI’s Chicago Field Office said. The offender remains at large.

The agency said in a bulletin that the man seen here is responsible for holding up the US Bank branch in Chinatown, 2263 South Wentworth, at 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

Then, he reportedly struck again around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday at Citibank, 180 North Michigan. Chicago police said the man entered the bank and told the teller that he had a gun. The worker handed over cash to the robber who fled west on Lake Street.

The robber is 35- to 45-years-old, stands 5’2” to 5’6”, and weighs 110 to 120 pounds. He has brown hair and a tattoo on his right bicep.
