CHICAGO — A man who was arrested by police shortly after the robbery of a Loop bank Tuesday afternoon has been charged in connection with the incident.
Jamal Genson, 28, appeared in federal court Wednesday and was charged with a count of felony bank robbery.
A Fifth Third Bank was robbed about 3 p.m. Tuesday after a man demanded money from a teller using a note before running off, according to FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde, an agency spokeswoman.
"Don't say a word, they're outside waiting for me," he allegedly told the teller, according to the affidavit.
The teller gave him $184 from a drawer as well as a GPS device that was used to track the robber.
About 50 minutes later, Chicago Police arrested a man who identified himself as Genson near Chicago and Wabash avenues who matched the description of the suspect.
He was taken back to the bank, where the teller identified him as the robber.
