A Wauwatosa man was charged Monday with robbing PNC Bank, 6810 W. State St.

According to the police report:

Matthew McInnis, 21, handed a note demanding $1,000 to a bank teller. The teller handed over cash, and he walked out the door.

As soon as McInnis was outside, the teller locked the entrance doors and told the security guard the bank had just been robbed at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Discarded clothing was found by the curb and McInnis was detained on Powell Place and 67th Street with cash and a knife in his pockets.

He told officers the knife was for protection and that he needed the money to pay rent.

He faces a felony charge of robbery with the threat of force. He is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 19.
