Known as the “No Boundaries Bandit,” the man described as a 200-pound Hispanic has robbed five Chicago banks, and now, seven in the suburbs—most recently in west suburban River Forest, according to the FBI.

The most recent robbery happened about 5:49 p.m. Monday at a TCF Bank branch at 800 N. Harlem in River Forest, according to the FBI.

The suspect is believed to be 25 to 35 years old, and stands between 5-foot-8 and 5-11, the FBI said. A $5,000 reward is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest.
