Chicago's Most Wanted: Female Bank Robber

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

This bandit definitely believes in the motto "if at first you don't succeed, try again."

And it was the second holdup on the same day that resulted in the payoff.

FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde says the bandit in this case first walked into the Fifth Third Bank on Narragansett near Diversey on Jan. 5. She presented the teller a note demanding money. But the bank employee took too long and the would-be robber walked out in frustration.

The woman then went across town to the Charter One Bank on Cermak near California. There she also presented a note and threatened violence. This time she got some money and left the bank.

It is fairly unusual for women to rob banks, but not unheard of. In this case there is concern that this woman may strike again, perhaps emboldened by the fact that she got away with one robbery and one attempted robbery.

In both cases after giving the bank employee a note demanding money the robber made threats, implying that she had a gun. There is always concern that the next time the situation might escalate.

Surveillance cameras did not capture any images of a vehicle and so at this point we don't know if there was a getaway car or how the woman got to either bank.

Here is how the FBI describes the bank robber:

  • Hispanic female.
  • 20-to-25 years old.
  • 5' 2'' to 5' 3'' tall.
  • Black or brown hair.
  • She also was wearing eyeglasses.

She is considered dangerous. If you see her call police.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
