'Bandage Bandit' Continues Robbing Banks

(STMW) -- A man authorities have dubbed the "Bandage Bandit" robbed his third West Side bank in the last month on Wednesday, the FBI said.

The robbery happened at the PNC Bank branch at 3337 W. North Ave. at 10:46 a.m., according to the FBI.

The suspect passed the teller a note before running away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The same man is suspected of robbing a Chase Bank branch at 3301 W. Cermak at 9:13 a.m. on April 6; and another PNC Bank branch at 2154 W. Madison on March 31, according to the FBI.

He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black skullcap in the latest robbery, and has not been armed during any of the crimes.

He wore a large gauze bandage on the left side of his face during two of the robberies, which led to the Bandage Bandit moniker.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
