WAUWATOSA -- Wauwatosa police are investigating a robbery at the M&I Bank located at 9210 W. North Ave. just before 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18th.

Police say a black man in his 30s, 6' to 6'2" tall, weighing 160 to 165 pounds with a medium build, brown complexion, short mustache and goatee and a small gold stud earring in each ear is responsible for this robbery. The suspect also has a distinctive tattoo in the general shape of an "X" on the left side of his neck.

The suspect wore a brown baseball cap, sunglasses and a navy blue sweat jacket with a dark t-shirt underneath.

Police say the man walked into the bank, and passed the teller a note demanding money, saying he had a gun. It's not clear how much money the man got away with.

Police believe this individual is also responsible for the robbery of a U.S. Bank, located at 2303 N. Farwell Ave in Milwaukee on January 5th, 2012. In that robbery, the man may have made his getaway in a dark, four-door full-size car, possibly a Chevy Impala.
