The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information about an armed woman who robbed a bank Monday in southwest suburban Oak Lawn.

The robbery happened about 2:40 p.m. at a Huntington Bank branch at 10240 S. Cicero Ave., according to the FBI.

A woman in her 50s or 60s walked up to a teller and showed a note and a small black handgun, Oak Lawn police said. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the woman left in a dark-colored SUV westbound on Oak Center Drive.

The suspect is a 5-foot-5 tall woman who wore a blue rain poncho, glasses and a black knit cap, the FBI said. She should be considered armed and dangerous.

The reward is offered for information leading directly to her arrest, the FBI said. Tips can be sent to the FBI’s Chicago field office at 312-421-6700.
