A man who robbed a Chase Bank branch Tuesday afternoon in northwest suburban Hoffman Estates is suspected in another bank robbery last month.

Tuesday’s robbery happened at 12:27 p.m. at the branch at 2555 W. Golf Road in Hoffman Estates, according to the FBI.

The robber was described as a 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-11 man in his 20s or 30s with black hair and a small build, the FBI said. He wore a black knit winter hat, black hooded zip-up jacket, red gloves and a multicolored scarf.

He is also suspected of robbing another Chase Bank branch about 6 p.m. Dec. 12 at 1600 W. Lake St. in west suburban Addison, according to the FBI and Addison police. In that robbery, he implied that he had a firearm and demanded money before running away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
