Glendale Heights police and the FBI say they are searching for a man who robbed a bank Monday morning and escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

Authorities said they responded at 10:23 a.m. to the Chase Bank branch at 2150 Bloomingdale Road for a report of a robbery.

Authorities said a man entered the bank and told a teller he had a weapon, although he did not display one. The robber fled on foot, leaving through the front door and possibly walking east. Authorities searched the area with a canine unit.

No injuries were reported.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, roughly 25 to 30 years old and standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall. Police said he had a medium build and black hair and black eyes. He also was described as having "big bags" under his eyes, police said.

The suspect was wearing a plaid sweater with white and green checks, black pants and black shoes.

Police Sgt. Douglas Flint confirmed a suspect matching a similar description robbed a nearby 7 Eleven store about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The suspect, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, stole lottery tickets, Flint said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Glendale Heights police at (630) 260-6070 or the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
