A Loop bank branch was robbed Wednesday afternoon.

The robbery of the Citibank branch at 222 W. Adams St. was at least the 152nd bank robbery in the Chicago area this year, according to the FBI.

The robbery took place early in the afternoon and the robber fled down Adams Street afterward, according to dispatch reports.

The robber was described as a black man 40-45, about 5-foot-8. His head was covered and while no weapon was shown, he may have implied he had a weapon in his waistband, according to unconfirmed dispatch reports.
