Man Robs Bank In Mount Greenwood Neighborhood

CHICAGO (STMW) – A man made off with an undetermined amount of cash after robbing a bank in the Far Southwest Side Mount Greenwood neighborhood Wednesday morning.

About 11:04 a.m., a man presented a note to a teller at a bank branch in the 11100 block of South Kedzie Avenue, police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. There is a US Bank branch at 11159 S. Kedzie Ave., according to the bank’s website.

The man indicated he had a weapon but no gun was shown, Mirabelli said. The teller complied with the man’s request and he left the bank, heading eastbound on 112th on foot.

The robber was described as a black male with a light complexion, police said.

He had his head covered but had scars on his face and hand. He is between 40 and 50 and 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7. He was wearing dark shades, a black hat and black coat, according to the FBI’s BanditTracker Chicago.

No weapon was show in the robbery and no injuries were reported.

This was at least the 33rd bank robbery in the Chicago area so far this year, according to FBI statistics. Last year there were 115.

    These cameras are a joke. What possible use do they have? Can you actually identify this person???

    • Max

      Tellers should shut down their windows and leave as soon as they are approached by someone in disguise.

    Instead of a camera, what about a taser? The minute the goon steps away, the teller steps on a button. Zap.

    • this is Peggy

    Minus the age range, this guy fits the description of the guy who has been robbing people in Blue Island.

    Heard on WBBM that another bank was robbed. They reported that the robber was wearing a scarf around his head & face!!! Banks are setting themselves up and putting a lot of people in danger by allowing people to wear a disguise!
