CHICAGO (CBS) — The FBI is looking for help in nabbing a robbery suspect who hit a Willow Springs bank for the second time in nearly six months.

Surveillance video captured the suspect entering the First Merit Bank, at 8480 South Archer Avenue, on Monday evening with a tire iron. He approached the teller counter and threatened to harm the bank employees if his demands for cash were not met.
