MAZOMANIE, Wis. -

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office released photos from surveillance footage of the man who robbed a Mazomanie bank Wednesday.

Deputies were dispatched at about 4:35 p.m. to the People's State Bank, at 222 W. Commercial St., after receiving a report of a robbery.

A bank employee told police a man entered the bank and demanded money.

The photos released Thursday morning show a person dressed in a navy zip-up hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, aviator-style sunglasses and a bandana or scarf covering his nose and mouth. There also appears to be a white trim detail outlining the front pouch pocket on the sweatshirt.

Sheriff's officials said the robber is described as a white man with an average height and build.

The robber was given an undisclosed amount of money, and he left the bank and fled the area on foot, according to a Dane County Sheriff's Office news release.

Deputies arrived at the scene within several minutes of the call. A perimeter was established and the area was checked with the assistance of a K-9 unit from the Waunakee Police Department, but the robber wasn't located, according to the sheriff's department.
