Female Bank Robbery Bandit Hits North Side TCF Banks Including Edgewater


A string of bank robberies has been carried off by a lone female hitting north side businesses. According to the FBI, the woman hit an Edgewater TCF Bank branch inside the Jewel grocery store located at 5343 N. Broadway on Aug. 14 at 3:52 p.m.

However, this was not the first or last in her string of thefts, the FBI said. On Aug. 5, she robbed another TCF bank at 3531 N. Broadway in Lakeview at 12:56 p.m. The bandit also struck again this past Saturday at an additional TCF Bank branch at 4355 N. Sheridan Road in Uptown.

The female robbery suspect has even sported her own criminal style, wearing oversized, floppy, beige hats and dark sunglasses. Officials said she approaches the tellers saying she has a weapon but does not show one. She then runs out of the business with undisclosed amounts of money.

The FBI describes the woman as 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-5, black and around 30-40 years of age. Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
