The man who robbed a Lakeview bank branch on Nov. 26 struck again last week in River North, the FBI said today.
Around 5 p.m. on Friday, the man seen above walked into Chase Bank at 1122 North Clark and held a demand note up to the window.
“No dye pack with the money,” the note warned.
The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, which the man placed in his coat pocket before leaving the bank.
Last month, a man wearing the same Nike-brand hat held a robbery note up to the teller glass inside Chase Bank at 3032 North Clark.
“This is an attempted robbery,” the note reportedly read. “Give me all the cash you have.”
The robber then fled onto Clark Street, bank employees told police.
An FBI bulletin describes the robber as a black man who stands about 5’8” tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He wore a black Nike hat, a black coat, dark pants, and brown shoes, the agency said.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads them to the offender. Anyone with tips can call the bureau’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700.
Several CWBChicago readers also said they believe the bank robber resembles the man who held up a Magnificent Mile currency exchange while dressed in Chicago police uniform parts on Dec. 2.
Investigators have made no public connection with that incident.
