Two Chicago banks were robbed late Wednesday morning, officials said. 

A man in a dark baseball hat and dark plaid shirt robbed the 1st Merit Bank at 7227 W. Addison around 10:13 a.m., according to the Chicago FBI. Police said the robber displayed a handgun and vaulted the bank counter before fleeing the scene.
 
Not long after, a man with a white head-covering and dark glasses passed a note to a teller at TCF Bank at 7342 W. Foster that demanded cash, officials said. He then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. 
 
No injuries were reported. Police took a possible suspect into custody in connection with the 1st Merit Bank robbery along with two other previous bank robberies, but details remain sparse.
 
Any information can be reported to the Chicago office of the FBI at 312-421-6700 or the Chicago Police Department.
