The FBI is asking for help in identifying a pair of bank robbers it’s calling the “Change Up Bandits,” who are suspects in four robberies at three banks in Oak Park and on the West Side.

The man and woman robbing the banks wear different disguises each time, according to the FBI, which says the robberies occurred at:

• Aug. 3 and Dec. 31 at Community Bank, 1001 Lake St., Oak Park.

• Aug. 28 at Byline Bank, 601 N. Harlem Ave., Oak Park.

• Sept. 23 at U.S. Bank, 6700 W. North Ave.

The man is African American, 35 to 49 years old, 5-feet-10 to 6-feet-1, about 200 pounds, and the woman is Hispanic, 20 to 25 years old, 5-feet-4 to 5-feet-7, with a large build, the FBI said.

Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI’s Chicago office at (312) 421-6700.
