FBI: Woman Robs Third North Side Bank In A Month

(CBS) — A woman suspected of robbing two TCF Bank branches this month on the North Side struck again Saturday afternoon, this time in the Uptown neighborhood.

At 3:07 p.m. Saturday, the woman entered the TCF Bank branch at 4355 N. Sheridan Rd. and handed the teller a note demanding money, according to Chicago Police and the FBI.

She then ran away with an unknown amount of money.

The woman implied she had a weapon, but did not show one, police said.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-5 black woman between 30 and 40 years old, the FBI said. She was wearing a white shirt and a white hat, police said.

The same woman is suspected in a bank robbery in the Edgewater neighborhood on Aug. 14 and again in the Lake View neighborhood on Aug. 5.

The Aug. 14 robbery happened at 3:52 p.m. at a TCF Bank branch at 5343 N. Broadway, the FBI said.

On Aug. 5, the woman is suspected of robbing a TCF at 3531 N. Broadway at 12:56 p.m., the FBI said. In that robbery, the suspect was wearing a large hat, sunglasses and a green shirt.

She did not show a weapon in any of the robberies, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
