Police are hunting for a man who indicated he had a weapon Monday while robbing a Warrenville credit union.

Police said a black man between the ages of 40 and 50 walked into the Northstar Credit Union at 11:19 a.m. near the intersection of Winfield and Warrenville roads.

The man was carrying a blue leather messenger bag and demanded money from a teller. While the man didn't display a weapon, one was implied, officials said.

The suspect was described as about 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a blue ball cap with a white emblem on the front, a white T-shirt, and a red/maroon Adidas jacket with three white stripes going down each arm from the shoulder to wrist, according to a news release.

The man escaped with an unknown amount of cash. He was last seen heading west on foot from the credit union.

On Monday afternoon, authorities released a photograph of the robbery suspect.

Warrenville police and the FBI are investigating.

Anyone with information should call Warrenville Deputy Chief Jeff Jacobson at (630) 393-2131 or the Chicago office of the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
