For the second time in a month someone has been robbed at gunpoint while going through the ATM lane of a Chase Bank branch in Arlington Heights.

About 9:45 p.m. on Monday, two black men approached a man's car in the ATM lanes at Chase Bank, 43 E. Golf Road, police said in a release on Tuesday.

 

One man approached the victim's car, showed the driver a black handgun and demanded money, police said. He is described as being between 5-8 and 5-11 and of thin to medium build, wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt with red and white lettering on the left side of the hood and a black bandanna with a design over the lower part of his face.

A second man got in the victim's car and demanded he withdraw money from the ATM. This suspect is described as 5-8 to 5-11, of thin to medium build and wearing all black, according to the report.

The victim pulled an undisclosed amount of money from his account and turned over money in his wallet to the two robbers, who then ran away, police said.

On Sept. 28 a similar robbery was reported at the same bank. A woman was getting cash from the ATM around 10:15 p.m. when a man approached, pointed a gun at her and demanded money, police said. He was described as black, 20-25 years old, 5-10 with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with gray writing and a dark bandanna.
