If you visit or work at a bank located anywhere on a street named Ridge, keep your eyes peeled.

The FBI is asking for the public's help in finding a suspect dubbed the "Ridge Road Robber."

On August 28, witnesses reported seeing a black man (30 years old, about 6 feet tall, weighing about 210 pounds) walk into the Chase Bank at 3115 Ridge Road in south suburban Lansing. He waited patiently in line for an available teller.

According to the FBI, the suspect handed the teller a note demanding money. The bank employee filled the robber's small blue bag with an undisclosed amount of money, and he fled.

No one was hurt.

Police also believe he may have been responsible for the July robbery of another Chase Bank on another Ridge Road, that time in Munster, Indiana.

While there are no reports of a weapon being used at the robbery in Lansing, he is considered armed and dangerous.
