FBI says it has captured man who robbed North Riverside bank



The FBI has captured a man they believe robbed the Chase Bank branch at 1730 Harlem Ave. in North Riverside on Tuesday.

Bank personnel called police at about 2 p.m. to report that a man wearing a black  jacket, black hat and brown boots walked to the front of the line and yelled at the teller to “give me the money or someone will get shot.”

Two tellers proceeded to give the man about $3,000 from two teller stations. The man then exited the bank eastbound toward Harlem Avenue. The man never displayed a gun. No one was hurt during the incident.

FBI agents responded to the bank at about 3 p.m. to process the scene and take over the investigation.

At 6:30 p.m., the FBI requested North Riverside police to impound a Lincoln MKZ sedan from the 5000 block of West 23rd Place in Cicero. That vehicle was wanted in connection with the FBI’s investigation, according to the police report.

While the FBI’s BanditTracker Chicago website notes that the suspect has been apprehended, there was no other information available about the suspect. No charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon.
