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.

      If he threw his outfit away after the bank robbery he would probably get away.
      They don’t have anything to go on other than he’s white and his hight.

      I have to admit he sure did conceal his identity well with that mask and it was a good thing he was wearing gloves. Naw, i don’t think they will catch that guy.

    Winter is the best time to rob a bank because you can put as much clothing as you want on and wear ski masks without looking suspicious, ask me how I know this/:)

    OK…how do we solve this…..Easy……One of two ways……

    #1- You have to use your BANK ISSUED ID to get into the building! (A credit card would even work)
    #2- have a LARGE servilance center that has camera’s on every door, and if someone walks up to the building with a ski mask on….LOCK the door!

    To me…the banks just show they DON’T CARE and let the insurance co’s cover the loss….and who does that affect? US!!!!
