    Bah, humbug!

    A Chase Bank branch on the Near North Side was robbed Saturday afternoon.

    No one was injured, but police said a an older man with a scruffy beard wearing soiled clothing, faded black jeans and a skull cap -- walked into the bank at West Chicago Avenue and North Clark Street, showed a note to the teller and walked off with cash.

    It happened at about 12:45 p.m., police spokesman John Mirabelli said.

    No weapon was displayed, he said.

    According to unconfirmed dispatch reports, the man took a “large amount of money.”

    The robber is suspected of being the same man who got away with money from a North Community Bank branch on Nov. 29 and a Chase Bank branch on Dec. 7.
