 At 10:37 pm, Dane County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to the Arby's Restaurant, 601 S. Gammon Road, in the Town of Middleton, after receiving a report of an armed robbery.  Employees of Arby's reported a lone gunman entered the restaurant, displayed a handgun, and fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

 The employees reported the gunman entered the store as they were closing for the evening, and confronted one of the employees.  The gunman forced this employee to the back of the store, where the second employee was working in an office.  The gunman then demanded money, and fled on foot.

 Responding deputies were on scene within two minutes of the call, and immediately set up a perimeter.  A Madison Police Officer and K-9 partner assisted with tracking the suspect, however the suspect was not located.
