DEFOREST, Wis. -

Nobody was hurt during an attempted robbery at Heartland Credit Union Monday afternoon, officials said.

The man left without getting any money, officials said. He did not display a weapon.

Police set up a perimeter, but the man had fled before their arrival, according to the release.

The robber is described as being about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, weighs up to 250 pounds, and left the scene in a red, four-door, SUV on Vinburn Road.

Anyone with information on the man's whereabouts, should call DeForest Police at 608-846-6756
