Chicago's Most Wanted: Fifth Third Bank robber

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Many times bank robbers try to keep their crime simple. They go in and hand the bank employee a note, get the money and leave. But in this case the robber took things up a notch.

This was a robbery that took place on September 4th. A man walked into the Fifth Third Bank at Narragansett and Schubert. He stood in line with other customers, but when he approached the teller he pulled out a handgun and demanded money. The two bank employees working behind the counter complied, giving the robber the money from their drawers. He then placed it in a dark colored briefcase and fled. No one was hurt.

One witness saw the man running eastbound on Schubert, and another individual who was walking a dog at the time located a dark colored handgun which had been tossed on the sidewalk. As it turns out the weapon was a 45 caliber replica BB gun.

In terms of a possible getaway vehicle, surveillance video in the area of the bank showed what appears to be a dark colored SUV arriving and then leaving right around the time of the robbery. Agents have since been able to determine that vehicle was a Toyota FJ Cruiser.

There is concern the crook could rob another bank and perhaps next time use a real gun.

Here is the FBI's description of this BB gun bank robber.

--Black male

--Late 30's to mid 50's.

--6'0 to 6'3'' with a stocky build.

--He wore a tan floppy fishing hat and carried a dark briefcase.

He is considered a danger to the community. If you see him, you're asked to call police.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
