A man suspected of robbing two suburban banks in two months struck again Tuesday afternoon in west suburban Glenn Ellyn.

The non-takeover robbery happened at 1:19 p.m. at a Fifth Third Bank branch at 704 Roosevelt Rd. in Glen Ellyn, according to the FBI.

The suspect is thought to be the same person who robbed a PNC Bank branch at 12:40 p.m. on Dec. 7 at 9 E. Ogden Ave. in Naperville, the FBI said. He is also suspected of robbing a Fifth Third Bank branch at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 21 at 2998 Ogden Ave. in Aurora.

He is described as a white man, in his 30s or 40s, standing between 6 feet and 6-foot-2, with a medium build and a light complexion, the FBI said. In at least one of the robberies he was carrying a black messenger bag and wearing a brown hat, dark blue winter coat, black winter gloves and black sunglasses.

The FBI, which warned the man should be considered armed and dangerous, is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
