CHICAGO, IL – The Byline Bank at 3435 W. 111th St. in the city’s Mount Greenwood neighborhood was robbed Friday morning, the FBI has confirmed. The robber is believed to be responsible for a robbery at a Byline Bank branch on the North Side last week.
The FBI described the suspect as a Hispanic man with a large build and in his 20s or 30s. He wore an orange Clemson University hat and black sunglasses, a long-sleeved black shirt and white gloves during the robbery, which is reported to have occurred at 10:50 a.m.
An unconfirmed report on social media indicates that the robber handed a note to a teller before he made off with the money. The FBI described it as a "non-takeover" robbery. It wasn’t immediately known how much cash was taken.
Around noon, a sign on the front door of the bank at the southwest corner of 111th and Trumbull indicates it is closed for the day although several people remained inside at the time.
Three Chicago police cars were at the scene in addition to a Chicago Fire Department ambulance, which left around that time. One officer was spotted walking into the bank after apparently telling one customer that it was closed.
The suspect in this robbery is also believed to have been responsible for the robbery of the Byline Bank at 3401 N. Western Ave. in the city’s Roscoe Village neighborhood on March 28.
