FBI says robber is the same man who robbed a bank in Bensenville April 2.
The Chicago Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking for anyone with information regarding a bank robbery that occurred at about 10:10 a.m. Monday, June 11, at the Inland Bank and Trust branch at 539 S. Spring Road in Elmhurst.
A man approached a teller and presented a note demanding cash. The note indicated that the robber had a gun, but a gun was not displayed during the robbery. After he was given an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled the bank on foot. No injuries were reported in connection with the robbery.
The robber, who is also suspected of robbing a Chase Bank branch at 123 Main St. in Bensenville on April 2, was described by witnesses as being a white male, 40 to 45 years of age, approximately 6 feet tall with short dark hair. He was similarly dressed for both robberies, wearing a dark sweatshirt, dark windbreaker-type pants and sunglasses.
Anyone with information regarding this bank robbery is asked to call the Chicago Office of the FBI at (312) 421-6700 or the Elmhurst Police Department at (630) 530-3050.
This is the second bank robbery in Elmhurst in a little more than two weeks. On May 26, two men robbed the TCF Bank branch in the downtown Jewel-Osco.
