Man robs bank 
in Fox Lake

FOX LAKE – Police are looking for a man who robbed a Fox Lake bank Tuesday afternoon.

The man with a surgical mask covering his face walked into the PNC Bank branch, 66 E. Grand Ave., about 2:40 p.m., handed a teller a note and fled with an undisclosed amount of money, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said.

Witnesses described the man as white, of medium build and about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. Besides the mask, he wore a tan coat, blue jeans, athletic shoes, gloves, a knit hat and scarf, Hyde said.

The robber did not threaten anyone or display a weapon, and no one was injured, Hyde said.

Fox Lake police and the FBI are investigating the robbery.
