A man dubbed the "Mummy Bandit" by the FBI because of the way he wraps his face is suspected of robbing a bank on the North Side on Sunday, his fifth since late December.

The robbery happened at a TCF Bank branch inside a Jewel-Osco store in the 4200 block of North Lincoln Avenue at 10:10 a.m. Sunday, police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said.
