Authorities seek suspect who robbed Willow River bank

Police are seeking the whereabouts of a suspect who robbed the Northview Bank in Willow River during the early afternoon hours Wednesday. 

Pine County Sheriff's office spokesmen believe the robber, who was believed to be driving an older red Chevrolet Blazer with Wisconsin plates, may have been heading for the Twin Ports area. He is described by investigators as a black man, about five feet seven inches tall, with a slender build.

A surveillance photo from the bank shows the man wearing a white mask, black hoodie sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.

Anyone with any information on the suspect is asked to call the Pine County Sheriff's Office or 911 immediately.
