Loop bank robber strikes for the 4th time in a month, FBI says

The Loop’s serial bank robber struck again on Friday afternoon, according to new information from the FBI, marking the fourth time he has robbed a bank in the neighborhood since May 2.

He picked the US Bank at 71 South Wacker for his latest heist, which unfolded at 3:16 p.m. on May 27, the FBI said.

The robber wore a Led Zepplin hoodie with the band’s “Swan Song” logo emblazoned across the front. It remains to be seen if Friday’s robbery will, in fact, be his swan song.

According to the FBI, the same man robbed Huntington National Bank, 20 North Clark, around 3:57p.m. on May 23; Chase Bank, 2 North LaSalle at 4:14 p.m. on May 9; and US Bank, 25 East Washington, at 11:23 a.m. on May 2.

He has presented written notes demanding money during each hold-up.

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

So far, the agency has not upped its $1,000 reward offer for information that leads directly to the robber’s arrest and conviction. Tips can be shared with the FBI’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700.
