FBI Hunting Fugitive Sam Chatman, Who Allegedly Robbed Banks

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The FBI wants your help finding a suspected bank robber.

Sam Chatman allegedly robbed two Chase Bank branches on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He allegedly struck the branch at 2438 Broadway at 90th Street on June 18. On July 27, the FBI says he struck again at 2824 Broadway at 109th street.

Chatman, 54, is described as 5’7″-5’9″, weighs 200 pounds, and is African-American. The FBI says he owns several weapons and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Chatman also likes to gamble: he’s been known to go to casinos.

“Chatman’s behavior is not only increasingly violent, but completely erratic,” Supervisory Special Agent Barbara Daly said.

The FBI is promising a “significant” reward for the tip that breaks the case. Anyone with any information about Chatman is urged to call the FBI at 212-384-1000. The FBI says people who offer information can remain anonymous.

    This guy lived next door to me. He trashed his apartment one day and left and the police have been looking for him in addition to his robberies. I always knew there was something up with him.

    Let’s get the facts straight, Sam Chatman didn’t rob banks. He just made several unauthorized withdrawals. And bank robbers are rank amateurs compared to the bank itself when it came to robbing depositors with all the fees they charge now and worthless interest on your accounts.
