Aurora police and the FBI are hunting for a man who implied he had a weapon while robbing a bank Sunday afternoon on the far east side of the city.

Police said it was about 4:10 p.m. when the man entered the Jewel-Osco that houses a TCF Bank at 1157 N. Eola Road and demanded cash from a 21-year-old bank teller. He then took an undisclosed amount of money and ran out a vestibule on the south side of the store.

Police said the suspect was described as a white man in his mid-20s, standing about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 160 to 170 pounds. He was wearing a white and black bandanna, sunglasses, a black hooded sweatshirt with a Chicago Blackhawks logo on the front, blue jeans and gym shoes.

No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at (312) 421-6700 or Aurora police at (630) 256-5500.
