A man who robbed a southwest suburban bank at gunpoint Friday morning is suspected of two other Southwest Side armed bank robberies in the last several months.

Friday’s robbery occurred at 10:24 a.m. at the U.S. Bank branch at 4062 Southwest Hwy. in Hometown, according to the FBI. The suspect brandished a handgun, according to FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde.

The same man is also suspected of robbing the U.S. Bank branch at 3525 W. 63rd St. about 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 28; and the same bank at 10:51 a.m. on Jan. 3, the FBI said. During those robberies, he showed a gun that was tucked into his waistband, Hyde said.

He is described as a 6-foot black man, 25-30 with a thin build, the FBI said. He wore a black jacket and baseball cap in one of the robberies, and a black-and-white winter hat in the other.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
