CHICAGO — A man who robbed a Streeterville bank Tuesday morning is believed to be the same man who robbed a River North bank last week, according to the FBI.
A Fifth Third Bank at 42 E. Ontario St. was robbed at 10:25 a.m. Tuesday by a man who passed a note to a bank teller demanding money, according to a Special Agent Joan Hyde, a FBI spokeswoman.
No weapon was shown.
The man was wearing a jacket and shoes similar to those worn by the robber in a Feb. 3 robbery of North Community Bank, 800 N. State St. at 12:50 p.m. that afternoon.
The suspect in that robbery was described as a black man with a dark complexion who was 5-foot-1 to 5-foot-3, weighing 125 to 135 pounds.
He also had glasses and a black messenger bag.
The man in Tuesday's robbery had a bag with a camouflage pattern, according to Hyde. Anyone with information is asked to call police or the FBI at 312-421-6700.
