The Lake County Sheriff's Office is asking the public for help in locating a man who robbed a bank near Grayslake Thursday.
Sgt. Sara Balmes said officers were called to Associated Bank, 34354 N. Route 45, in Third Lake at 10:47 a.m. Thursday on a bank robbery call. Balmes said the suspect jumped onto the teller's counter and demanded that money be put in a black Puma drawstring backpack.
Bank employees complied with the suspect's demands, Balmes said. The man then put the employees in a bathroom and fled the area. Balmes added that the man did not use or imply a weapon.
The man is described as being 5'7" to 5'9" tall with a slim build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue pants, camouflage boots, a black Puma backpack, latex gloves and sunglasses, Balmes said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff's Office at 847-377-4250 or the Chicago FBI Office at 312-421-6700.
