A man who robbed a U.S. Bank branch on Michigan Avenue Friday morning remains on the run, police said.

The robbery happened at about 10 a.m. at a branch in the 300 block of North Michigan Avenue when a man wearing dark clothing made off with an undisclosed amount of money, said police spokesman John Mirabelli.

The only description of the robber was that he was a man between 40 and 50 years old.

Mirabelli did not provide additional details about the robbery.

The incident is just one of many recent robbery attempts at banks downtown. On Wednesday, a Community Bank branch in the Loop was robbed, possibly by a man who'd robbed the same branch three times in the last two months. The FBI calls him the déjà vu robber.

In September, a young woman stole an undisclosed amount of money from a Chase Bank on Dearborn.
