CHICAGO (STMW) — Authorities are searching for a man who robbed two banks Tuesday afternoon in the Edgewater and University Village neighborhoods.

At 4:38 p.m., the man walked into the MB Financial Bank branch at 5918 N. Broadway and handed the teller a note demanding money, according to the FBI and Chicago Police. He then ran away northbound on Broadway with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robber did not show or imply a weapon and no one was injured in the robbery, police said.
