A bank on the Near West Side was robbed at gunpoint Thursday morning by a man wearing a face mask.
The robbery was reported at about 10:30 a.m. at Associated Bank, 1720 Monroe St., Madison police said.
Nobody was injured.
The suspect entered the bank, displayed a handgun and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
A WiscAlert went out on the UW-Madison campus because of the close proximity of the bank to the university, but police said a short time later the suspect was no longer in the area and posed no threat to the campus.
The suspect is a black male in his late teens to early 20s, thin build, 5 feet, 10 inches tall, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a red zipper, black athletic pants and the facemask during the robbery.
On Feb. 2, a man with a similar description robbed Old National Bank on Midvale Boulevard. Police didn't say if there was connection between the two robberies.
