The man passed a note to a teller demanding money and left the bank on foot heading east toward Route 59 with an undisclosed amount of money, according to West Chicago police.

The suspect is described as a white man approximately 25 to 35 years old, between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall with a muscular build. He was wearing a tan "newsboy" hat, a dark long-sleeved shirt and dark pants with white piping down the sides, according to police.

He is described as having a colorful tattoo along the right side of his neck.

Police said a suspect matching the physical description robbed a BMO Harris Bank on Lake Street in Bloomington Thursday and exhibited similar behavior during the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (312) 421-6700 or West Chicago police at (630) 293-2222.
