The FBI is asking for the public's help to catch a bank robber nicknamed "the Kangol bandit."

The man in the surveillance photo released by the FBI is apparently behind four robberies in the Chicago area. The most recent one happened December 11 at a Chase Bank in Calumet City.

In each of the incidents, the FBI says, the thief wore a suit and a Kangol-style hat. He approaches the teller and threatens to use a gun while demanding cash.
