Authorities are investigating an armed robbery at Peoples State Bank in Boyceville.

No suspect is in custody, Boyceville Chief of Police Greg Lamkin said in a release.

At 8:27 a.m. Tuesday, an armed robbery was reported in which an individual pointed a weapon at an employee and left with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect was wearing a tan jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt and is described as a white male, possibly in his mid-20s about 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a stocky build.

The suspect appears to have arrived and fled from the bank by foot, Lamkin said. No one was hurt in the incident.

Boyceville schools were under a precautionary lockout, but students left at the end of the day Tuesday under normal procedures.
