CHICAGO (CBS) — The so-called Bully Bandit, who has now robbed six banks since late November, struck again Tuesday afternoon when he walked into a bank on the Northwest Side, according to officials with the FBI’s Chicago office.

The bandit robbed a Chase Bank branch about 12:21 p.m. at 5620 W. Belmont Ave. in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood, said FBI spokesman Joan Hyde.

Authorities described the Bully Bandit as a Hispanic man in his late 20s to early 30s who stands about 5-foot-7 and has a medium build, brown eyes, black hair and a mustache.

He wears a black hoodie underneath a black jacket, the FBI said, adding that he did not show a weapon in his latest bank robbery.
