A man who recently held up a local bank branch pulled off another heist in nearby Lincoln Park this weekend, the FBI says.

The offender robbed the Fifth Third Bank branch at North Avenue and Clybourn around 9:40AM Saturday and then fled southbound, according to an officer who was on-scene.

According to the FBI, the same man robbed the Byline Bank at Halsted and Diversey on January 26; the U.S. Bank at 2131 S. China Place in Chinatown on December 28 and the American Eagle Bank at 2255 N. Western in Bucktown on January 15.

He is described as a black man standing between 6-feet and 6’4” tall, with a slender to medium build and a scruffy beard.

The FBI is offering a reward for information that leads to the man's arrest. 312-421-6700.

  1. At least this one gets around a bit and tries not to be caught rather than "robbing" the same branch location 4 times. I'll bet nobody would get a second chance at stealing Rahms hubcaps.

  2. I saw in the news that the banks in the Jewels are all being closed. That should result in a reduction of bank robberies in the region!

    1. I wish they would close all banks in Jewel stores. Those kind of banks attract their own kind of trashy people. Did you ever check out the customers waiting in line at a TCF? Scary...very scary.

  3. I bet he hits that idiotic bank branch in side Broadway Jewel soon.
