Man sought in robbery of Champaign bank
CHAMPAIGN — Police are looking for a man who robbed the Chase bank near downtown Champaign on Friday afternoon.
Champaign police Deputy Chief Troy Daniels said the man gave a "threatening note" to a bank employee, and the employee handed over an undisclosed amount of cash around 3 p.m. Friday. The man then fled on foot southbound from the bank at 201 W. University Ave.
According to Daniels, the suspect is a white man with dirty blonde hair, about 6 feet tall and 185 pounds, wearing black shorts, a blue shirt and a red and blue Budweiser hat. Police believe his hair was stuffed into his hat to make it appear shorter.
