Man robs Aurora bank

A man robbed a bank Thursday afternoon in west suburban Aurora.

The man walked into the Associated Bank branch at 301 W. Galena Boulevard at 12:54 p.m., approached a female teller and made a threatening demand for money, according to a statement from Aurora police. No weapon was involved and nobody was injured.

The robber then walked out of the bank through a northwest door and fled in an unknown direction, police said. It was not immediately clear whether he entered a vehicle.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-10, 150-pound black man in his 30s with a light, thin mustache, police said. He was wearing dark sunglasses, a baseball cap, black jacket, light-colored pants and tennis shoes.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700, or Aurora police at (630) 256-5500.
