The robber pushed a bank customer to get to the teller window, according to statement from Hyde. He then demanded money, but before the teller could respond, he reached across the counter and grabbed cash the teller was handling for the customer who was pushed.
The robber then fled on foot and was last seen heading west on Cermak. A weapon was displayed but no one was injured, Hyde said.
The suspect was wearing a black hat, gray coat, and had most of his face covered with a black scarf, Hyde said.
