He struck again Monday afternoon, the FBI said in a news release.

The FBI says the man stands between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall and weighs between 250 and 260 pounds.  He has a goatee.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call the Willow Springs Police Department at (708) 467-3700 or the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
