— Janesville police are asking for the publicís help in gathering information about a bank robbery Monday afternoon.

The suspect, a white male in his mid-20s to early 30s, walked into Mid America Bank, 2317 Milton Ave., at about 4 p.m., according to a press release from the Janesville Police Department. He presented the teller with a note demanding money, but did not display a weapon.


After receiving an unknown amount of money, the man fled from the bank, traveling north through the parking lot of TAASBAG, 2339 Milton Ave.


No one was injured during the incident.


The suspect is described as having a thin build, about 5-feet-11-inches tall and about 190 pounds. He has dark-colored hair, brown eyes and a dark goatee. He was wearing a long-sleeve blue shirt, blue jeans and a tan-colored baseball hat with black lettering on the front.


The man was captured on bank surveillance cameras.


Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect should contact the Janesville Police Department at (608) 755-3100 or call the Janesville Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 756-3636.
