The FBI is assisting in the investigation, and reiterates suspicions that the Wednesday suspect may be the same man responsible for eight other incidents.
Camera footage shows a similar-looking suspect robbed other banks in Madison, Middleton, Rockford, Janesville, and Dubuque since September.
Law enforcement say he looks late 20's to early 30's, may have a red phoenix tattoo on his neck and may drive a Carolla with a sunroof.
"We need to get this individual off the street as soon as possible before somebody gets hurt," said FBI Spokesperson Leonard Peace. "This individual should be considered armed and dangerous, do not attempt to approach him in any way. Whether or not they produce a weapon, at that point of the robbery the mere implying that they have the weapon is enough to make for a dangerous situation."
Peace says anyone with more information should call Madison-area Crimestoppers at (608) 266-6014. If you see this man in person, they say not to approach him and call 911.
So far he has fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

From the Madison Police Department:
At approximately 9:04am on Wednesday, June 06, the Anchor Bank-West Towne branch, located at 333 S. Westfield Road in Madison, was robbed.
The robber is described as a male/white, 25-30 years of age, wearing a Green Bay Packers baseball cap, sunglasses, long sleeved green and white plaid shirt, and faded jeans.
The suspect provided a note that said he had a weapon, and then verbally demanded money.
He fled the scene in a vehicle, possibly a silver Toyota Corolla.
No one was physically injured during the incident.
The Madison Police Department is investigating. Detectives believe this hold-up is likely connected to a string of other recent bank robberies that have occurred in several states.
