MADISON, Wis. — Madison police are investigating after a teenager said he was robbed at gunpoint then forced to drive to a credit union to withdraw money for the robbers.
According to police, the 16-year-old was sitting in his car on the 2200 block of Rosenberry Road just before 11 a.m. Saturday when two suspects, described as 17 and 35 years old, opened the door and pulled him out. After a struggle, the teenage suspect allegedly hit the victim in the face with a handgun and threatened to shoot him.

Once inside, the 16-year-old told employees and they called police. However, the suspects got away.
The teen had a minor injury to his face.
