A man robbed a bank Monday morning in northwest Indiana.

At 10:41 p.m., a man walked into the Fifth Third Bank branch at 701 W. Old Ridge Rd. in Hobart, Indiana, implied he had a gun in his waistline and demanded cash, according to the FBI and Hobart police.

The man ran south from the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and got into the passenger seat of a four-door black car, possibly a Chevrolet Imapala, which continued south through an alley, police said.

He is described as a white man with a medium build, weighing 220-250 pounds, standing between 5-foot-8 and 6-feet, and wearing a black ski mask with a small opening for his face, a black hoodie, black glasses, and blue and white shop gloves, authorities said.

Anyone with information should call the Indianapolis FBI at (317) 595-4000.

Police said the suspect’s description in Monday’s robbery was similar to that of a man suspected of robbing an Allegius Credit Union branch at 2027 E. 37th in Hobart on Feb. 25. The suspect in that robbery drove away in a silver Mitsubishi Galant with a missing driver’s side rear hubcap and red tape on the passenger side mirror, police said.
