2 Banks Robbed, Three Robbers On The Loose

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (STMW) — Three bank robbers are on the loose, including a man who wore a paintball mask to rob a northwest suburban bank Friday afternoon and another wanted for sticking up a Logan Square bank an hour later.

Surveillance images of the 12:30 p.m. robbery at the TCF Bank in the 1400 block of Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows show one of the men on top of the teller counter.

The FBI says a bank employee was assaulted and received minor injuries.

One of the men was Hispanic, between 5-foot-2 and 5-foot-6 with a thin build. He wore a black paintball mask, black cap, black jacket, gray pants and black shoes, the FBI said.

The other man is Hispanic, between 20 and 25, 5-foot-10 to 6-foot with a medium build. He was wearing a black bandana on his face, a black puffy winter coat, blue jeans, black shoes with white soles and used a small black backpack with drawstring.

No weapon was shown in that robbery.

About an hour later in the Northwest Side Logan Square neighborhood, a man robbed a Northern Trust bank branch in the 2800 block of West Fullerton Avenue, police said. The man implied he had a weapon but didn’t show one and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.

    It’s like the old saying give someone 5 dollars and they eat a meal but, if you give them a fishing pole and teach them to fish they always have a meal.

    These Feds what are they going to just become part of Chicago forever or are they the 5 dollar meal to serve temporarily?

    Arm the law biding citizens and teach them to defend and they stay protected, even after the Feds leave.

    The real problem is this country are the ILLEGALS.
    Round up these criminals, and send them all back to Mexico.

    Stop taking money from rich, wealthy job creators who work hard and “distributing” it to lazy black people and ILLEGALS.

    Let’s Take Back Our Country!!!
