A man robbed a Near North Side bank Tuesday afternoon.

The man, thought to be in his 40s or 50s, was wearing a black wig and golf cap when he walked into the Fifth Third Bank branch at 29 W. Division St. about 3:30 p.m., according to the FBI.

He didn’t show a weapon but was able to make off with an unspecified amount of cash, authorities said.

The robber is described as a thin black man wearing a dark blue jacket and sunglasses. Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.

Another bank was robbed on the South Side about an hour earlier.
