Oak Park police are searching for a man who attempted to rob PNC Bank, 6621 W. North Ave., at 10:45 a.m. on Jan. 29.

The offender entered the bank office, told a bank employee he had a gun and demanded that they give him “all the money”, Oak Park Police Commander Roger Grivetti said.

The employee left the office to comply with the demand, and the offender exited the building. He headed eastbound on West North Avenue, southbound on Columbian Avenue and then eastbound in the alley to the south of West North Avenue.

No loss was reported.

The offender was described as a black man with a dark complexion, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8, approximately 40 years old with a thin jaw line, a beard with gray hair, a slim build, brown eyes, and wearing transitional glasses, a black and gray skull cap, a surgical mask, a gray jacket, and blue jeans.

Grivetti said in a telephone interview that police detained two people during the investigation, but neither were determined to be the offender and were subsequently released. The Chicago FBI Bank Robbery Task Force investigated the incident, Grivetti said. An FBI spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
