The woman passed a note to a teller at the Chase Bank in the 600 block of North Dearborn just before 9 a.m. The note demanded money and implied she had a weapon, police said.

Authorities said the robber, believed to be in her mid- to late 20s, had blond hair and a ponytail. She was wearing tight blue jeans or black pants, white gym shoes and a baseball cap with a mesh back.

There have been at least 60 bank robberies this year in the Chicago area, according to the FBI.
