WOOD DALE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man suspected of two previous northwest suburban bank robberies struck again in Wood Dale Friday.

Friday's robbery took place about 2 p.m.at the Charter One Bank branch at 333 E. Irving Park Road in Wood Dale, according to FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde. The man implied that he had a weapon but did not display one, Hyde said.

The man is also suspected of robbing another Charter One Bank branch at 3901 Kirchoff Rd. in Rolling Meadows on April 19 and a Harris Bank branch at 130 West Devon Avenue in Wood Dale on Feb. 15, the FBI said.

The FBI said the man displayed a silver, semi-automatic handgun in the April robbery. Rolling Meadows police said he approached a teller and demanded money.

The FBI described the February heist as a "non takeover bank robbery."

The robber is described as a white man, 55-60 years old, 5-foot-10 to 6-foot-1 and 165 pounds with a thin build, light complexion and gray facial hair. He was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, blue jacket and blue jeans during the February robbery and a dark-colored plaid jacket during Friday's robbery, the FBI said.

A reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700; Rolling Meadows police at (847) 255-2416; or Rolling Meadows Crime Stoppers at (847) 590-7867.
