A man authorities call the TCF Bandit has struck again. This time, his target was a west suburban bank branch.

The suspect was captured on surveillance photos. Investigators say he robbed the TCF Bank branch on South Brainerd in Countryside Monday.

The bandit wears head coverings and glasses. The FBI says he should be considered armed and dangerous.

This latest robbery brings the number of banks he is suspected of holding up to 12 since February of 2007.
