A bank was robbed Wednesday morning in north suburban Skokie.

The First American Bank branch at 4611 Golf Rd. was robbed just before noon, according to FBI spokesman Garrett Croon and Skokie police.

The suspect was described as a 6-foot, 200-pound, black man in his 50s, wearing a dark navy baseball cap with the word “classic” written in cursive on the side, a blue t-shirt, black pants and sunglasses, authorities said.

The suspect did not show a weapon, and no one was hurt, authorities said. The robbery was classified as a non-takeover incident.

Croon said FBI agents and task force agents were at the scene Wednesday afternoon.

Anyone with information about the robbery should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700 or the Skokie Police Department at (847) 982-5900.
