The Pine County Sheriff's Office and the FBI are looking for the person who robbed a bank in Willow River Wednesday.

A masked male brandished a semi-automatic handgun and demanded cash from a teller at the Northview Bank just after Noon.  The sheriff's office believes he fled in an older model red Chevrolet Blazer with Wisconsin license plates.

The FBI said the suspect is described as a black male who stood approximately 5'7" in height and who had a slender build.  The robber wore a white mask, a black “hoodie” sweatshirt, and grey sweatpants.  The robber also displayed a dark colored, semi-automatic handgun.  

The sheriff's office asked anyone with information to call them at 320-629-8380 or the FBI at 763-569-8000.  There is a reward available for information leading to a conviction.
