FBI: Woman left bank smiling after robbery with accomplice

Tribune reporter

Authorities are looking for a man and woman who paired up to rob a McKinley Park neighborhood bank this week on the Southwest Side.
The two walked into the Fifth Third Bank branch at 1950 W. 33rd St. about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday and passed a note to the teller that implied they had a weapon and demanded money, according to FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde.
No weapons were shown and surveillance photos show the sunglasses-wearing woman left the bank with a smile on her face after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Hyde.
No one was injured and Hyde noted that it was unusual for two people to be involved in this kind of incident, known as a “non-takeover’’ bank robbery.

“It’s usually a lone person,’’ Hyde said.
The woman was described as white, about 5-foot-7, and wearing a striped shirt, flip-flops, and jeans, according to the FBI. She has long dark hair and appears to be between the ages of 20 and 30.
The bearded man is described as Hispanic and between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-6, according to the FBI. He is between the ages of 25 and 35 and has a thin build, and was wearing all dark clothing including a black shirt and black hat, and was also wearing black sunglasses at some point during the robbery, according to the FBI.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the FBI, 312-421-6700.
