FBI on the lookout for 'surgeon bandit'

The FBI is looking for a man they have nicknamed the "surgeon bandit." Surveillance photos show the man wearing a surgical mask walking into the Citizens Financial Services Bank in Palos Heights on September 29. He threatened a teller and demanded money before fleeing with the cash.

The same person is believed to have robbed the Midwest Bank Branch in Bloomingdale back in April.

The surgeon bandit is described as a stocky white male, 30 to 40 years old, standing 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9.

Anyone recognizing this person is asked to contact the FBI's Chicago office.
