The FBI is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads them directly to the man who tried to rob a Loop bank branch on Thursday afternoon.

At 1:08 p.m., the man entered Citibank at 180 North Michigan and demanded $50 and $100 bills from a teller, according to a police report.

The man fled empty-handed because the teller did not comply.

According to the FBI, the offender is a black male who wore a dark winter hat, khaki pants, black gloves, and white shoes. He also had a black backpack.

Anyone with information about the man can contact the FBI’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700.
