CHICAGO (CBS) — The FBI is on the hunt for a bank robber dubbed the “Stick Figure Bandit.”

“Stick Figure” is suspected of robbing a Chase Bank branch, 513 Central Avenue in Highland Park, around 10 a.m. on Sept. 1.

The suspect has been so-named because of his extremely slender build.

According to witnesses, the robber entered the bank wearing a plain dark-colored baseball cap and approached the counter.

The robber passed the teller a demand note, which announced the robbery, the FBI said in a news released. Although the robber implied that he had a weapon, no weapon was displayed. The teller retrieved money from the teller drawer and turned it over to the robber, who then walked out of the bank branch.

The “Stick Figure Bandit” is described as a white/male, approximately 5’9 – 6’0” tall, with a very slender build. He wore a dark-colored baseball cap with no logo, blue jeans, a blue long-sleeved button down shirt and carried a bright yellow backpack with black stripes.

Anyone recognizing this individual or having any information about this robbery is asked to call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700 or any law enforcement agency.
