Bank of America, 7126 W. North Ave., in Chicago, was robbed on Friday afternoon, according to the Chicago Bureau of the FBI.

The FBI reports that the robbery occurred at 1:52 p.m. and was a non-takeover event, meaning no hostages were taken and most bank employees were unaware that a robbery had taken place until later.

The robber also is suspected of robbing U.S. Bank at 5850 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, on Aug. 2.

He was described as being between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-6 in height and having a large build. He wore a black hat with red accents, a black shirt and sunglasses.

Anyone with information can contact the Chicago Bureau of the FBI at 312-421-6700.
