Boystown: Man Robs Third North Side Bank In 21 Days

A robber held up his third North Side bank in three weeks Friday afternoon, according to the FBI.

The man walked into the Boystown Jewel-Osco, 3531 North Broadway around 3:30 p.m. and presented a robbery note to a teller at the TCF Bank branch that’s located inside.

Witnesses said he fled from the store and jumped into a taxi cab heading north on Broadway.

The FBI describes the offenders as a white man between 25- and 35-years-old, 6-feet tall, 190 pounds with blonde facial hair. He was wearing a gray hoodie and khaki pants during Friday’s hold-up.

The same man robbed the TCF Bank inside of the Jewel-Osco store at 2940 North Ashland on March 30 and the TCF Bank located inside of the Jewel-Osco store at 4355 North Sheridan on March 24, the FBI said.

A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the robber. Tips can be shared with the Chicago FBI office at 312-421-6700.

  1. I'm thinking addiction is feeding this guy's motive. He makes no attempt to cover his face. Drug addiction is one of the major roots of the City's and surrounding burbs' issues.

    1. Agreed. I don't miss all the people hopped up on something or another in that city.

  5. You'd have thought he'd high-tail it out of the area, move out of state or city or neighborhood with the loot he took instead of pressing his luck.

  6. Omfg. I called the FBI and told them to immediately pick him up while panhandling at the Armitage off ramp. Guess it wasn't a priority. This was in the morning before he robbed the TCF on Ashland...in the afternoon! Guess he found a more lucrative gig than panhandling at the Armitage off ramp.

    1. I called the FBI as well - wanna go halfsies on the reward? :D
      Haven't seen him at that exit in the last couple weeks either.

  7. This isn't the Armitage offramp guy. Too heavy. My guess is that he lives in southern Wisconsin or northeast Indiana, close enough to come to town regularly, but kind of out of the Chicagoland media coverage.
