Palatine police responded about 3:11 PM Monday to a bank robbery at the Chase Bank 825 Euclid Avenue Palatine, IL. Police received a report of a takeover style bank robbery at the Chase Bank. Takeover robberies are inherently more violent in that the robbers force everyone to the floor for control, and empty all the drawers and sometimes the vault. No details of the takeover are available, and no injuries were reported. Most bank robberies involve a quiet passing of a note or other quiet communication.

Heavily armed police officers with K-9 units searched residential yards nearby and throughout a perimeter near the bank.

Offenders were described as Two Males about 5'9" to 5'10"; Dark hooded jackets; white gloves; black shoes. Reports are that the offenders did not show any weapons.

An earlier bank robbery occurred at 3901 Kirchoff Road in Rolling Meadows. It is unknown if the bank robberies are connected.
