Police say the man who robbed a west suburban Elmhurst bank Monday morning also robbed a Bensenville bank more than two months ago.

The latest robbery occurred around 10:10 a.m. at the Inland Bank and Trust branch located at 539 South Spring Road in Elmhurst. A man approached a teller and presented a note demanding cash. The note indicated that the robber had a gun, but none was displayed during the robbery, an FBI news release said.

After he was given an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled the bank on foot. No injuries were reported.

The robber, who is also suspected of robbing a Chase Bank branch in Bensonville on April 2, was described by witnesses as being a white man, 40-45 years old, about 6'0" tall, with short dark hair. He was similarly dressed for both robberies, wearing a dark sweatshirt, dark windbreaker-type pants and sunglasses.
