(CROWN POINT, Ind.) A man suspected of robbing three banks since November struck again Wednesday at a bank in Crown Point, Ind.

The most recent robbery happened Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bank branch at 10705 Broadway in Crown Point, according to the FBI.

Since November, the same suspect has struck three banks in the west and north suburbs, the FBI said. At least one of those banks was robbed at gunpoint.

He robbed a Chase Bank branch at 975 E. Belvidere Rd. in Grayslake on Dec. 26, according to the FBI. About 5:50 p.m. on Dec. 8, he used a gun to rob a Fifth Third Bank branch at 750 North West Highway in Cary.

The robbery spree began on Nov. 21, when he robbed a BMO Harris Bank branch at 850 W. Army Trail Rd. in Carol Stream, according to the FBI. He also attempted to rob a Chase Bank branch in Valparaiso, Ind. on Dec. 23.

The suspect is described as an 5-foot-11 to 6-foot black man, in his 20s, with brown eyes and brown hair, according to the FBI.

During the robbery in Cary, he was wearing a dark, zip-up jacket, a button-up shirt and eyeglasses, the FBI said.

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