Officials say an armed man robbed a small bank in Marathon County yesterday afternoon.
The heist happened at around 3:00pm at the Banner Bank in Hatley, east of Wausau. The sheriff’s office says the man entered the bank wearing a snowmobile mask, armed with a hand gun.
He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. He took a customer’s vehicle, which was later recovered in a nearby wooded area.
As of last night, the suspect was still at large.
The president of Banner Bank says customers of the bank should not be affected and their accounts are safe.
