  • Special Agent Joan Hyde (312) 829-1199

Agents from the FBI responded to a bank robbery that occurred February 15, 2013, at approximately 2:20 p.m. The robber, believed to be the same individual previously nicknamed the “Bully Bandit,” entered the Chase Bank branch located at 3339 West Belmont in Chicago, approached a teller window, and loudly and aggressively announced a robbery. As in the past, the Bully Bandit did not display a weapon, but he kept one hand under the dark-colored hooded sweatshirt he was wearing during the robbery, implying that he had a weapon. He also wore dark pants and gym shoes, and he once again covered his face with a black scarf. He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. There were no injuries reported.
