Man robs third bank in Chicago in a month

A man who robbed a bank Thursday on the Northwest Side has now robbed three banks in about a month, according to the FBI.

His latest target: a Chase Bank branch at 3339 W. Belmont Ave..

Authorities think the same man robbed a Chase branch at 3335 N. Ashland Ave. on Aug. 27 and a PNC Bank branch at 201 N. Lincoln Ave. on Aug. 21.

The man, who didn’t show a gun, was described as white, about 6-feet-2, weighing between 180 and 210 pounds and wearing a blue Chicago Bears cap, blue jeans, black shoes and a T-shirt, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said.

The FBI asked that anyone who might have information about the robber call the agency at (312) 421-6700.
