Police released a sketch of the man they believe robbed a Loanmax employee at gunpoint Aug. 27 on Madison's east side.

The woman had locked up the Loanmax at 3066 East Washington Ave. around 6:09 p.m. and was walking to her car when a man appeared next to her, according to the release.

The robber fled on foot, according to the release. He is described as a black male in his late 20s, 5 feet 9 inches tall with a muscular build. He was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, dark colored shorts with a red stripe down the side and a baseball hat.
