The FBI is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads directly to the arrest of a man who robbed an Uptown bank on Tuesday afternoon.

The reward is at least $650 less than the robber got away with, according to details in a police report that documents the incident.

Officers responded to Byline Bank, 4701 North Clark, after receiving a silent alarm from a teller window at 3 p.m.

Bank employees told cops that the man seen above presented a note in which he demanded money and claimed to have a gun. After collecting an estimated $1,620 in twenties, the offender fled eastbound on Leland Avenue.

The FBI today said the man stands 5’4” to 5’6” tall, has a small build, and wore a black coat, black hat, black gloves, dark pants, and black shoes.

Anyone with information about the case can contact the FBI’s Chicago Field Office at 312-421-6700.
