RUSH CITY, Minn. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a man who robbed a bank in east-central Minnesota.

The Chisago County sheriff's office says the man walked into the Northwoods Bank of Minnesota in Rush City early Tuesday afternoon, told the teller he had a gun and demanded cash.  The suspect handed the teller a plastic grocery bag and fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

Authorities describe the suspect as a white man, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing about 220 pounds. The suspect vehicle is a black two-door compact car.
