Help us help Chicago authorities apprehend the prolific bank robber dubbed “Bully Bandit”, described as a Hispanic man 20-to-30-years old with black hair, brown eyes, 5’ 8” with medium build that has a mustache.

The “Bully Bandit” started his crime spree back in November of 2012 at a West Town neighborhood, Community Bank branch.  Since then 10 other bank robberies are being attributed to him including his most recent robbery of $2,000 from a Chase Bank this past Saturday in the Logan Square neighborhood. 

The majority of the “Bully Bandits” bank targets have been Chase Bank branches. Although he has not displayed a weapon during any of his heists, according to the FBI, witnesses have reported that he keeps one hand in a clothing pocket, implying that he has a concealed weapon.

The robber was dubbed “Bully” because of his aggressive and pushy demeanor at times yelling at tellers and pushing customers out of the way, according to authorities. 

The FBI is offering a $15,000 reward for any information, you can contact them at (312) 421-6700 if you have any information.
