BELOIT, Wis. -

Beloit police are seeking a man involved in an armed robbery at a downtown ATM Sunday.

The victim was using an ATM in the 400 block of Public Avenue at about 6 p.m. when a man with a handgun approached on foot and forced his way into the vehicle, according to police.

Investigators said the woman finished the withdrawal and was forced to drive to the intersection of College Street and Bushnell Avenue before being ordered out of the vehicle. The robber also took the woman's cash.
