EASY PEASY: Cops Seek "Diminished" Man In LP Bank Heist

A reportedly "diminished" offender robbed the Citibank branch at 2555 N Clark in nearby Lincoln Park on Saturday morning. No one is in custody.

Bank employees told police that the robber, who appeared to be mentally challenged, implied that he had a weapon as he presented a note to the teller at 10:35AM, then escaped with an envelope full of cash.

The offender is described as a heavyset black man with a cut or scar over his right eye. He stands about 5-feet, 5-inches tall and he wore a puffy polo shirt with white and red stripes.

The FBI's official description--which was accompanied by one of the least-helpful bank surveillance photos in recent memory--says the offender may be black or Hispanic and he appears to be in his 30's or 40's.

  1. Technology exists which is capable of taking photographs from satellites thousands of miles away in space that are such high resolution they can read license plate numbers on Earth...yet banks and stores have "security" cameras that produce useless photos like this. Along with the fact that a teller won't resist a robber even if no weapon is present, it makes it so easy to rob a bank. If I was a total loser...a lazy ass, unemployable, ignorant jagoff like this guy or the other criminals...I guess I would go rob a bank too.
