CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A woman dubbed the "Shady Bandit" by the FBI robbed an Edgewater bank Thursday, her fifth robbery of a TCF Bank branch on the North Side since last year.

The woman, who wears dark sunglasses, demanded money from an employee at the TCF Bank branch at 5516 N. Clark St. just after 2 p.m. Thursday, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said.

She made off with an undisclosed amount in cash, Hyde said. No one was hurt.

Authorities believe this is the fifth North Side bank the woman has robbed since last April, Hyde said.

On Feb. 11, she robbed the TCF Bank branch at 4355 N. Sheridan Road., according to the FBI. She is also believed to be the woman who robbed the TCF branches at 5343 N. Broadway, and 3531 N. Broadway, the latter twice according to the FBI.

She has been described as a black woman about 35 with a dark complexion, about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7.
