Sussex Associated Bank robbed, again

A deputy with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department confirmed the Sussex Associated Bank was robbed around 8 a.m. this morning, July 28.

The deputy did not have any information regarding if money was taken and how much. He did report that bank employees called 911 around 8 a.m. to report a black man about 5-feet, 4-inches tall with a short beard entered the bank, at N64 W23710 Main St. He said the Sheriff's Department immediately responded. But the bank employees said the man displayed a hand gun and then fled on foot. No one was injured according to the deputy.

An unknown resident called the Sussex Sun to report that the Sheriff's Department had blocked of Main Street in the area of the bank for about two hours and had their guns drawn.

The Sheriff's Deputy that answered the phone at the department desk Saturday evening said the FBI is assisting in the investigation which is ongoing and that he had no further information at this time.

This is the second time the bank has experienced a robbery since March. On March 21, Krystal Y. Kompsi, 28, of N65 W22001 Woodfield Drive, Town of Lisbon, testified for prosecutors against March H. Scott, 31, of Milwaukee during a preliminary hearing March 30 in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

Kompsi testified Scott went inside "to scope out the credit union in order to rob it," a criminal complaint said. When Scott was arrested, he was walking toward a vehicle occupied by Kompsi, the complaint said.
Kompsi said authorities Scott wore a large coat in order to stuff money in it, the complaint said. Kompsi said she is afraid of Scott, as he beats her and chokes her, the complaint said.

Kompsi was found guilty of two counts of theft and faces nine months of jail time and four years of probation. Scott did not go to jail after a doctor determined that he was not competent enough to for trial. He was committed to the Department of Health Services. He sentencing will be readdressed once he has “regained his competence.”
