Investigators from the FBI are searching for a man suspected of robbing one DuPage County bank and attempting to rob another.

Both took place late Saturday morning, affecting banks in Lombard and Villa Park, FBI spokesman Garrett Croon said.

 

The TCF Bank at 555 E. Butterfield Road in Lombard was robbed about 11:30 a.m., Croon said. The suspect is described as a right-handed, clean-shaven black man in his 30s or 40s who stood about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. Croon said witnesses described him as wearing a gray beanie cap, a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black gym shoes.

Earlier Saturday, an attempted robbery was reported at about 11:07 a.m. at the Standard Bank at 1 W. Roosevelt Road in Villa Park, he said.

Croon said the FBI posts information about these and other robberies at the Bandit Tracker Chicago website, bandittrackerchicago.com.
