Blame 'Baby Face' in Bold Chicago Bank Holdup.

Chicago -- The Aetna State Bank on Chicago's north side, a half block from the spot where John Dillinger was killed, was invaded by six masked bandits and robbed of $18,500, all in cash. The masks prevented positive identification, but the figure of the leader and the boldness of the robbery led to the suspicion that 'Baby Face' Nelson, hunted Dillinger gangster, led the raid. Robert Cairns, bank policeman, is shown looking at the door glass smashed by the bandits in their hasty exit. (1934)
