The FBI is searching for two men who they say robbed two TCF Banks inside Jewel-Oscos in the past two weeks and attempted to rob a third.

The suspects robbed the TCF Bank inside the Jewel-Osco at 125 E. Stearns Road in Bartlett at about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, according to the FBI.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Earlier in the day two men, believed to be the same suspects, tried to rob a TCF branch inside the Jewel-Osco at 1069 N. Roselle Road in Hoffman Estates but were unsuccessful, according to authorities.

On May 26, the same men are believed to have robbed the TCF branch inside an Elmhurst Jewel-Osco at 153 E. Schiller Street, just north of York Street, said FBI Special Agent Ross Rice.

The man presented a teller with a note and fled with cash during the Elmhurst robbery, according to the FBI.

The suspects are described as black men in their 20s standing about 5 feet 8 inches. They were wearing hats and sunglasses during Wednesday's robbery in Bartlett, according to the FBI.

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