Man robs Belmont Bank in Loop

A man robbed the Belmont Bank and Trust branch in the Loop on Monday afternoon.

The suspect entered the bank in the 100 block of West Wacker a few minutes before 1 p.m. and showed the teller a note demanding money, according to a Chicago Police report and the FBI.

When the teller tried to take the note, the suspect snatched it away and said, “This is a robbery, give me your 100s, 50s and 20s,” according to the report.

The teller asked the suspect to repeat himself, and he did, according to the report. The teller handed the suspect cash and tried to give him a dye pack but was unsuccessful.

The man grabbed the money and ran out of the bank, according to police. No weapon was shown, according to the FBI.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-2, 200-220-pound black man between 35 and 40, according to the FBI. He was wearing a turquoise polo shirt.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
