The Chicago F.B.I. has confirmed a report that the First Midwest Bank, 2 Main Street, Park Forest, was robbed this morning.
According to Special Agent Julia Meredith of the Chicago F.B.I., at approximately 11:40 a.m. Friday morning, two female employees were servicing the ATM on the north side of the building when they were approached by a black male, approximately 6-feet tall.
According to the F.B.I., the man said he was armed and demanded money, which the employees gave him. The man then fled on foot. The man did not show a weapon, according to Agent Meredith.
The F.B.I. is taking the lead on this one. Acutally, the F.B.I. takes the lead on all bank robberies, since banks are federally insured.
