Two branch banks, one in the South Loop and one in Logan Square, were robbed this morning, authorities said.
Two men robbed a bank in the 3000 block of North Pulaski Road about 10:15 a.m. and fled on foot, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala. No one was injured in the robbery, which was at a Chase Bank branch, police said.
No detailed description of the men was available this afternoon.
In the South Loop, a man robbed the TCF Bank, 1224 S. Wabash Ave., about 11:30 a.m., authorities said.
The man entered the bank, approached a teller and announced a robbery, FBI spokesman Ross Rice said in an email. The robber displayed no gun and no one was injured.
The robber of the TCF bank was described as black, about 6 feet tall and between 40 - 50 years old. Surveillance photos show him wearing a black coat fastened with a zipper and with a zipper pocket on its left arm, along with a dark-colored winter headband.
