MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minneapolis FBI is searching for a man who allegedly robbed a TCF Bank on Lake Street twice in two days.

Police say the first robbery occurred around 2:30 p.m. on Monday and the second occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. Tuesday — both at the TCF Bank located at 1444 W. Lake St. in Minneapolis.

In both cases, the man received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled from the bank. He is described as a white man, 6-feet-tall, 180 pounds and between the ages of 40 and 50. He was wearing glasses, a gray zip-up hooded jacket with dark pants and dark shoes.

If anyone has information about this robbery, they are asked to contact the FBI at (612) 376-3200 or the Minneapolis Police Department at (612) 673-5705.

    1. Matt says:

      i am confused who is the trash? The bank or the robber or both?

  2. KegHead says:

    WOW! This guy is from St. Louis, a true drug store cowboy!

    1. St Louis County says:

      you mean.

  3. Charlies says:

    This is a very poor management bank. All people at this bank should be fired.

    1. Real Talk says:

      Wow…what kind of a name is Charlies?? Like as in the plural for Charlie? I didnt see an apostrophee so its not possessive.

      What the heck is “poor management bank” ????????????

      And why would you fire some janitor, or teller who wasnt even working that day because the bank got robbed twice?

      Learn English or STFU you piece of uneducated trash.

  4. Charlies says:

    I bank with TCF but I think it is not safe place for me no more

  5. Kevin says:

    No! They had excellent customer service so he returned….

  6. James says:

    Actually, he returned to dispute an overdraft fee and undisclosed service charges. Apparently he requested the money over the phone but they required a manager’s approval so he picked it up in person. I believe there’s a new TCP mobile app as well as a robberies to go parking sign to be installed this week.

    Come on, don’t blame the workers. The simple fact that these guys came back to work after a situation like this the first time shows their courage and integrity. I would provide them all training, conceal and carry permits, and arm them for self defense if I was in charge of the bank.

    1. Neko says:

      It would be irresponsible of a bank to arm employees and encourage them to resist robbers. That would put customers are risk of being injured. Bank tellers are already trained to handle robberies – they are to cooperate, remain calm, and call the police after the robber has left. They do this to keep the tellers and any customers in the store as safe as possible, because the sooner the robber gets what he wants, the sooner he will leave. The money in the bank is insured and there is abolutely no reason for anyone to risk their life.

      1. It's not working says:

        That’s being REACTIVE, not PROACTIVE. Bank robberies are in the news a lot lately. They should be expected at this point. Banks need to change their policy.

  7. RFF says:

    time to put an off duty cop in some of these banks. They have the money , just don’t want to pay for this service. They would rather be robbed mulitipile times.

  8. SM says:

    hmmm there is something wrong with this picture….are you sure the teller is not involved in the robbery? It appears to be the same teller both days. Is this just a coincidence?

    1. I'm just saying.... says:

      Interesting observation – assuming the photos are from different days.

      1. nope says:

        yesterday, the photo shot showed a line of people waiting behind him so this shot is only todays.

  9. Dear TCF says:

    Hey TCF! You’re my bank and you’re holdin’ a not so small amount of my dough. So, when someone walks in, especially on an unseasonably warm day with a hood up, LET’S PREPARE FOR THE WORST, shall we. If at any time, someone looks to be concealing their appearance, INDOORS, let’s make that call.

    1. Obv. says:

      Hey Mr. nobody, Im sure TCF cares about your 2k or 50k you have, that money is never in danger from a bank robber, the only people stealing your money is TCF, and frankly if you still bank with them, then you deserve to be robbed!

      1. Dear not-obv. says:

        Didn’t ask your opionion unless you are affiliated with TCF, obv. not.

  10. Billy says:

    I never hear of any of the bank robbers getting cought..

    I think the majority of bank robbers never get cought.

    1. Stipend says:

      “Smrater”? Are you the spelling and grammer police? You are a rascist pig.

  11. blind eye says:

    if they had better cameras might have a real picture, its soooo lame

  12. really? says:

    Its amazing when its a white person doing something bad WCCO has no problem saying it, but if its someone else they don’t what race they are…. Interesting….

    1. really? says:

      Help, I’m a dope
