A Chase bank in Addison was robbed Wednesday morning in the second theft in five days, the FBI said.

Just before 11 a.m. Wednesday, a man entered the bank at 600 W. Lake St., demanded money and displayed a gun, according to the news release.

 

The robber was described as a thin Black man his early 50s who stands about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. He was wearing sunglasses along with a black jacket, black beanie and black face mask, according to the FBI.

The bank also was robbed Friday. The suspect in that case was described as a Black man who is about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He did not display a weapon or make any threats but gave a bank worker a note demanding money, the FBI said.

Anyone with information about the robberies should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700 or submit a tip at tips.fbi.gov.
