The FBI is trying to figure out whether there's a connection between two suburban bank robberies that happened hours apart. The most recent happened Monday in Skokie around 4 p.m.

Police say five men walked into a Chase Bank branch on Dempster and ordered those inside to get down on the floor before taking off with cash.

A similar robbery happened in Oak Lawn a few hours earlier. Police say a group of men armed with handguns targeted a Suburban Bank and Trust on South Cicero.

No one was hurt in either incident.
