TCF Bank Branch Robbed In Lakeview

CHICAGO (STMW) — A man implying he had a weapon robbed a Lakeview bank branch inside a Jewel-Osco grocery Saturday afternoon on the North Side.

The man approached a teller inside a TCF Bank branch in the 3600 block of North Southport Avenue about 1:40 p.m. and implied he had a weapon, police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien said.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, O’Brien said. Nobody was injured.

The bank is inside a Jewel-Osco grocery at 3630 N. Southport Ave.

The man is described as a white, approximately 35 to 45 years old, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6, wearing a black leather jacket, spotted hoodie, black hat and black gloves, according to the FBI.

The FBI and Belmont Area detectives are investigating.

    Until someone gets hurt in a Jewel, these bank branches will continue.

    A bank right next to the Vatican has you go through a controlled revolving bullet-proof door to enter and leave.

    Problem solved!

    The TCF bank will have to raise their fees to cover the loss in the heist. What a bunch of losers. Charge the hell out of someone when they are down and out.

    Good riddance…read this and you’ll know why I feel the way I do.
    Maybe the robber was mad over their unfair fee’s and wanted his money back.
