CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

The robbery of an Uptown bank branch Tuesday afternoon was third in a span of about four hours in Chicago, and at least the fourth by the same woman.

About 2:40 p.m. the suspect walked into the TCF Bank branch at 4355 N. Sheridan Road. No weapon was implied or shown, and the woman left the bank with an unknown amount of cash, according to FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde.

The robber is believed to be the same one who has robbed three other TCF Banks on the North Side since April 26, 2013, Hyde said. The other robberies were at branches at 5343 N. Broadway, and 3531 N. Broadway, the latter having been robbed twice according to the FBI.

The suspect is described as black woman about 35 years old with a dark complexion, about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 wearing a black coat with a fur-lined hood, dark glasses and a white or cream-colored knit cap.

Earlier Tuesday, a Seaway Bank branch at 645 E. 87th St. in Chatham was robbed about 11 a.m., Hyde said.

And just a half hour earlier, a Fifth Third Bank branch at 42 E. Ontario St. was robbed, she said.

No one was injured in any of the robberies, and no one was in custody as of late Tuesday afternoon.

Anyone with information about any of the robberies should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
