VILLA PARK – Members of the Villa Park Police Department on July 11 arrested a man accused of robbing a bank in Wisconsin earlier this month.

Randy Glenn Paulson, 55, of Friendship, Wis. was charged with bank robbery in the FBI's U.S. District Court of Madison after allegedly robbing Grand Marsh State Bank on July 3 in Grand Marsh, Wis.

According to investigators, Paulson entered the bank, pointed a handgun at a teller and said, "This is a robbery." He collected cash from the tellers' drawers and then approached a customer at the bank, demanding her car keys. When the woman did not answer, a teller at the bank volunteered her keys instead.

Paulson left the area in the teller's car and was arrested July 11 in Villa Park.

He appeared in federal court in Madison on July 12 and his arraignment is scheduled for Friday.

If convicted, Paulson faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison.
