Hudson police are looking for a man who robbed the Associated Bank, 2200 Crest View Drive, at approximately 1 p.m. Friday.

Police are looking for a lone white male who entered the bank, approached a teller and demanded money. He was armed with a handgun which appeared to be wrapped in a small towel.

The robber is described as being 6 feet to 6 feet-2 inches, average build having short brown hair, wearing a brown baseball cap, blue sweatshirt, blue jeans and a blue handkerchief across his face.

He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money in his hand and was seen leaving the area on foot. He was last seen running toward Walmart and Wendy's.

Hudson Police Department Detective Shawn Pettee said the area was searched extensively by members of the Hudson Police Department, St. Croix County Sheriff's Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol.

"We shut down the entrances to Walmart and kept people in the store for a short time while we checked all the vehicles," Pettee said. "We did the same thing at Wendy's."

Walmart security cameras were also reviewed for any possible leads. The parking lot and camera searches, however, did not result in any arrests and the search for the robber continues.

Pettee said, however, the police are pursuing several leads.

"I've been in contact with some Twin Cities departments and it is possible the individual is the same person who has robbed banks in So. St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights and Minneapolis," Pettee said. "He fits the same MO and description."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hudson Police Department at (715) 386-4771 or (715) 386-4701.
