Evanston Police swarmed around the First Bank and Trust Branch at 741 Main St. late this afternoon after the bank was apparently robbed for the second time in less than a week.

Witnesses said officers hunted for possible suspects in the area along Sherman and Custer Avenues just north of the bank and police reportedly had a detailed description of at least one man sought in the incident.

No further details were immediately available.
