Chicago's Most Wanted: The 'Bully Bandit'

Posted: Updated:

Some bank robbers are calm and quiet, or simply demand the money with a note.

But a very active robber, who's hitting banks around Cook County, seems like he's always in a bad mood.

The FBI is calling him the "Bully Bandit" because of the aggressive demeanor he has shown during his hold ups.

In the course of some of the robberies he approached the teller windows and demanded cash in a loud and threatening manner.

In some cases he also has pushed customers out of the way to get to the teller, or to get out of the bank after getting the cash.

The FBI believes he has robbed six banks -- first on November 28th 2012 at the North Community Bank branch at 1600 West Chicago Avenue in Chicago.

Another bank was robbed twice in the span of a week; the Chase Branch at 4440 West North Avenue, which was hit on November 30th and December 6th.

Then the PNC bank branch at 6620 West Ogden in Berwyn was robbed on December 11th.

On December 27th another PNC Bank branch in Berwyn was robbed, this one at 6650 West Cermak, just a short distance from his prior Berwyn robbery.

The most recent holdup in the case occurred on January 18th at the Plaza Bank at 5601 West Belmont in Chicago.

The robber kept his face well-hidden, either with a scarf that covers the lower half of his face or with a hoodie pulled tight around his face. When he wore the hoodie, witnesses reported that he kept the strings that tighten the hood in his mouth.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the Bully Bandit.

Here is the FBI's description of the Bully Bandit:

--Male Hispanic

--Late 20's to early 30's.

--About 5'8''

--Medium build


--Bushy eyebrows

He is considered a danger to the community, if you see him please call police.
