The FBI is searching for a man who attempted to rob a bank Tuesday morning in north suburban Waukegan.
The attempted robber, a thin, 5-foot-8 to 6-foot man in his late 40s or 50s, displayed a handgun at the Associated Bank branch at 1 S. Genessee St. in Waukegan, according to the FBI, which classified the incident as an “attempted non-takeover bank robbery.”
The man was last seen running southwest from the bank’s entrance into an alleywayon the west side of Genesee Street wearing a black cap under a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, grey gloves and black circle-shaped sunglasses, authorities said.
The FBI offers a cash reward for information leading to a bank robbery arrest. Anyone with information should call (312) 421-6700.
