ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Police say a U.S. Bank branch in St. Paul was robbed Wednesday morning by a lone masked man.
The robbery occurred around 9:51 a.m. at 1959 Burns Ave. According to authorities, the robber entered the branch, walked up to a teller and made a verbal threat demanding money.
At one point, he allegedly told the teller that he wanted more money, or else he would shoot her. However, no weapon was actually observed.
The robber was given an undisclosed amount of money then fled the bank on foot.
He is described as a white man, about 6-feet tall with a medium build, believed to be in his 20s or 30s. He was wearing a black coat with buttons on the front, a black ski mask, dark-colored ski cap and black gloves.
He is also believed to be responsible for the bank robbery at the Central Bank branch at 2120 Hennepin Ave. S. in Minneapolis that occurred last Friday.
