A man reportedly robbed the Bank of America, 16301 S. Harlem Ave. in Tinley Park, at 10:07 a.m. Aug. 6, according to the FBI. 

A weapon was reportedly “inferred,” but no customers or employees were physically injured, according to a post on the official Facebook page for the Village of Tinley Park Public Safety.

The offender fled in an “unknown direction” by “unknown means.”

In an email to The Tinley Junction, Tinley Park Police Chief Matthew Walsh said, “our units responded and secured the scene.”

The investigation was turned over to the FBI. 

The suspect is described as a large black male, who wore a camouflage hat, a black shirt and multiple gold necklaces.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of this unknown suspect.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery should contact the FBI’s Chicago Field Office at (312) 421-6700.
