An armed robber struck a bank branch Saturday morning in west suburban Oak Park.

At 11:08 a.m., the robber displayed the handle of a handgun that was tucked in his waistband before demanding cash at the TCF Bank branch at 601 N. Harlem Ave., according to the FBI and Oak Park police.

He made off with roughly $1,300 and was last seen heading south on Harlem and then east on Erie Street, police said.

The robber is described as a black male, standing between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-1, with a medium build and a light complexion, the FBI said. He was seen wearing a brown leather jacket, light-colored jeans, a black face mask and black-rimmed glasses, authorities said.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information should call the FBI’s Chicago field office at (312) 421-6700.
