A serial bank robber, responsible for 8 hold-ups in the Loop, hit twice Thursday, FBI says

A serial bank robber needed about 30 minutes to rob two more branches in the Loop on Thursday afternoon. The FBI now says the man has robbed eight banks in the Loop since May 2.

He may have decided he needed to rob a second bank on Thursday because a CPD report said he received just $7 during the first hold-up. According to the FBI, that robbery occurred at Huntington National Bank, 29 East Madison, at 3:57 p.m.

He pulled off the second robbery at PNC Bank, 302 West Adams, around 4:30 p.m., an FBI bulletin said.

According to the agency, the same man robbed:

The FBI said the man is 5’5″ to 5’8″ tall and is in his 50s or 60s.

The agency is still offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads directly to the arrest and conviction of the man. Its Chicago field office can be contacted at 312-421-6700.
