MADISON, Wis. -

The Madison Police Department is looking for a man who officers said robbed a woman at gunpoint inside a bathroom at West Towne Mall.

On Wednesday at about 7:48 p.m., the man crawled under the divider and stood up inside the stall with the woman, according to a report. He put a handgun to the 40-year-old woman's head, demanded money and then fled, police said.

Police are looking for a black man in his 20s with a medium build. Police said he was wearing a black jacket with the hood pulled up, black jeans, shoes with white on them and had black fabric covering the lower half of his face.

Police said the victim did nothing to draw attention to herself, and catching the robber is a high priority.
