Chicago's Most Wanted: TCF Bank robbers

Posted: Updated:

Bank employees came face-to-face with the most dangerous type of bank robbers: two men armed with guns, pointing them right at the tellers.

This is what the FBI calls a takeover robbery. It is the most volatile type of holdup. It happened at the TCF Bank branch at 2301 North Harlem Ave in Chicago on September 15th. Two men came in the bank and both were armed with handguns. Both made aggressive verbal threats and one of the men jumped over the counter to get the cash.

As we can see from the bank security camera photos, the men both covered much of their faces.

The man carrying a silver handgun used a surgical or medical mask to cover his face. The other man pulled the drawstring of his hoodie tight around his face, exposing little more than his eyes.

Both men were also wearing black gloves, so there were no fingerprints left behind to help FBI agents identify them. But there is some information to go on. The one individual with the silver handgun was wearing a pretty distinctive sweatshirt, with a design on the front. In the case of the other man, you can see at least part of his face.

The FBI hopes someone who sees this story will take a good look at the photos and will know of someone with a similar appearance who suddenly came into an unexplained amount of cash, or heard something about this crime.

There is a reward for information that helps FBI agents identify these two men. They are dangerous individuals who showed a willingness to used guns during the robbery, and the concern is that the next time the situation could escalate. Here is the best description the FBI has of these two robbers:

--Two black males

--Approximately 25-30 years old

--Between 5' 8'' and 6' 0''

--Both men have medium builds

--They wore dark clothing including hoodies and gloves

The robbers are considered armed and dangerous, if you see them you are asked to call police.

    Going off to college is an exciting time for the entire family, especially for the upcoming freshman. But with technology, parents can be in touch all the time. What's too much and what's just enough? Freshman move-in day seems to be harder on the parents than the students at Stony Brook University.
