Evergreen Park bank robbed

  • Written by Bob Rakow

The FBI continues to investigate a robbery last Friday of an Evergreen Park bank.

The incident occurred at about 3 p.m. when a man in his late 20s or early 30s robbed the BMO Harris Bank branch at 9950 S. Kedzie Ave., according to the FBI's BanditTrackerChicago website.

The man was described as black, 6-foot to 6-foot-1, with a thin build and a birthmark on his forehead above his right eye. He was wearing a black or burgundy jacket and a black skullcap when he robbed the bank, according to the FBI.

The FBI does not believe the robbery is connected to an attempted bank robbery that took place about 30 minutes earlier at Suburban Bank & Trust, 9901 Western Ave., which is about a mile away.

The Evergreen Park robbery comes about two months after an attempted robbery Jan. 13 of the Evergreen branch of U.S. Bank at 2917 W. 95th St., which also remains under investigation by the FBI.

Anyone with information about any of the incidents is asked to call the Chicago office of the FBI at 312-421-6700.
