MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police said a robber made off with a cash register from a Subway restaurant after walking into the store in a ski mask Saturday night.

A 26-year-old woman working behind the counter told police she locked herself in a bathroom with a co-worker when the man entered the store at 4692 Cottage Grove Rd. and walked behind the counter.

The two employees said they stayed in the bathroom during the robbery and found the cash register missing when they emerged.

The robber is described as black, 6 feet tall and wearing all black clothing.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
