The FBI believes the same man may be behind a bank robbery at a Chase Bank in Irving Park and an attempted bank robbery at a Bucktown bank.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The FBI is searching for a suspect who robbed a Northwest Side bank on Wednesday, and may have tried to rob another bank just hours earlier.

The FBI said a bank robbery occurred just after 5 p.m. at the Chase Bank located at 3204 W. Irving Park Road. In that incident, the suspect used a note to demand funds and no weapon was shown.

The suspect fled the scene on foot and is currently at large, the FBI said.

The FBI described the suspect as a white male with blonde hair between the ages of 40 and 50, wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans and a blue surgical mask. A photo of the suspect was not immediately available.

The FBI said the suspect in that incident bore a "strong resemblance" to the suspect in an attempted bank robbery earlier that day at the PNC Bank located at 1955 N. Damen Ave. in Bucktown.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact the FBI at 312-421-6700 and
