Dane Co. Deputies are searching for a female suspect after an attempted robbery Thursday in the Town of Blooming Grove.
It took place around 11:00 a.m. in the parking lot of the US Bank at 3661 County Highway BB .
A woman was returning to her car when she was approached by another woman. That woman asked the victim for directions and a ride. She then told the victim she had a knife and threatened to cut her if she didn't hand over money.
A knife was not seen, and the victim pushed the suspect away and ran into the bank.
The suspect is described as a white female approximately 5’6-5”8 tall, 100-110 pounds, with blonde hair that was pulled back.
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is trying to identify anyone who may have been in the area at the time and may have information on this incident.
