OCONOMOWOC — A lone suspect robbed the Associated Bank on Summit Ave. in Oconomowoc around 11 am. on Wednesday, June 27th.

Investigators say the suspect entered the bank and showed a teller a demand note. After getting an undetermined amount of money, the man took off. No weapon was ever display and no one was injured in the robbery.

The suspect is described as a male, white, 20-25 years old, approximate six feet tall with a thin build and very short, dark hair. He was unshaven with a slight goatee.

The robber was wearing a maroon baseball cap, black-rimmed sunglasses and a gray short sleeved shirt with the words “if I throw a stick, will you leave?” on it. The suspect also had a long sleeve shirt under the gray shirt, dark athletic pants and dark shoes.

The FBI Milwaukee Division says the suspect matches the description of the serial bank robber believed to be responsible for seven other bank robberies.
