Rolling Meadows police and the FBI are investigating a bank robbery that occurred near the intersection of Algonquin and Golf roads Thursday afternoon.

A man in his mid 50s entered the TCF Bank, 1415 W. Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows, just after 4 p.m. Thursday and left in a vehicle with an undisclosed amount of money, according to authorities.

 

The man did not show a weapon, according to the FBI.

Police said there was one customer in the bank when the man slipped a note to a teller implying that he had a weapon and demanding money.

He was described as a white man with salt and pepper hair who is balding on top. He was wearing sunglasses and a dark polo shirt with a dark jacket over it.

No one was injured during the robbery.

The entrance to the bank was roped off by police tape late Thursday afternoon, and a Rolling Meadows mobile command unit was parked outside the building.

A reward is being offered for any information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the Rolling Meadows Police Department at (847) 255-2416.
