Chavez Elementary School was put in lockdown for about 20 minutes Thursday afternoon because of a bank robbery nearby, Madison police said.
Officials said they were dispatched to reports of a bank robbery at 2:53 p.m. at the Associated Bank inside Copps on McKee Road.
The school was locked down for about 20 minutes because of its proximity to the bank and the fact that the robbery happened around the time students were supposed to be released for the day, police said.
A weapon was not seen or implied, the robber just demanded money, police said. A K-9 unit was brought in to track the robber as he is believed to have fled on foot.
Police do not have a description of the robber at this time.Thursday, February 20 2014, 04:13 PM CST
