The FBI is asking for the public's help in its effort to track down the man responsible for robbing a Highland Park bank branch last month.

The "Stick Figure Bandit" is described as a white/male, approximately 5'9 - 6'0" tall, with a very slender build.

The bank robbery took place September 1, 2011 , around 10 a.m. The Chase Bank branch at 513 Central Avenue in Highland Park was robbed.

According to witnesses, the robber entered the bank wearing a plain dark colored baseball cap and approached the counter. The robber passed the teller a demand note, which announced the robbery. A release from the FBI said, although the robber implied that he had a weapon, no weapon was displayed. The teller retrieved money from the teller drawer and turned it over to the robber, who then walked out of the bank branch.

Anyone recognizing this individual or having any information about this robbery is asked to call the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700 or any law enforcement agency.
