Man robs Northwest Side bank

A Plaza Bank branch was robbed Thursday afternoon in the Dunning neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The robbery happened about 3:30 p.m. at Plaza Bank at 3555 N. Harlem, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said.

The robber, a man about 30-32, walked in, demanded money and left with an unspecified amount of cash, Hyde said. He didn’t show a weapon and no one was injured.

Chicago Police initially said two males walked into the bank.

The robber is described as a 170-pound black man about 6 feet tall, Hyde said. He was wearing white shoes, reading glasses and a hat.
