A man suspected of robbing a Rolling Meadows bank in October has struck again, this time in Arlington Heights, authorities said Saturday.

Police responded Friday morning to Glenview State Bank, 1801 South Arlington Heights Road, after the suspect passed a note to a teller and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was shown and no one was hurt, said FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde.

The robber was described as a white man standing about 6 feet tall with a thin build. He was wearing a puffy jacket, blue jeans and a baseball cap, Hyde said.

The same man is suspected in four other Chicago-area bank heists in the last month. Authorities said he robbed a TCF Bank at 1415 Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows on Oct. 26, a Popular Community Bank in Chicago on Nov. 5, a Harris Bank in Park Ridge on Nov. 9, and a TCF Bank in Chicago on Nov. 15.

In the four earlier cases, the suspect wore a baseball cap and a gray or dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, according to surveillance images at bandittrackerchicago.com.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the FBI's Chicago office at (312) 421-6700.
