FBI: Man Robs Multiple Chicago Banks Within Days

The man allegedly robbed two banks and tried to rob another within a one week span

Authorities released photos of a man suspected of robbing two banks and attempting to rob another within one week in Chicago.

The FBI offered few details, but said the man wore a black parka coat, a brown face mask and red backpack.

The robberies occurred about 3 p.m. Saturday at the TCF Bank inside Jewel Osco in the 2500 block of Narragansett Avenue in Belmont Cragin; and about noon Jan. 12 at the First Midwest Bank in the 3900 block of North Avenue, the FBI said.

The man also attempted to rob a TCF Bank about 6:30 p.m. Friday in the 2500 block of West 47th Street, the FBI said. The surveillance photo from that incident appears to show the man and teller separated by glass.
