FBI offers $1,000 in hunt for North Side bank robber

The FBI says this man has robbed two Chicago bank branches since October 31. | FBI

CHICAGO — The FBI is on the lookout for a man who has robbed two North Side bank branches.

His first robbery was just after 6 p.m. on Halloween at the Huntington Bank branch inside Jewel-Osco, 4355 North Sheridan. He fled without getting any money from the teller, according to an FBI bulletin.

The bulletin said he was more successful on Tuesday, December 26, when he robbed another Huntington branch inside a different Jewel. This one occurred around 5:49 p.m. at the 5343 North Broadway location.

In its reward announcement, the FBI said the robber is about 5’7″ tall and 60 to 65 years old. He wore a dark blue hoodie during both robberies and masks—a surgical-style mask on Tuesday and a dark face mask in October.

People with information about the man can contact the FBI’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700 or online at tips.fbi.gov.
