      Man holds driver at gunpoint

      An investigation is underway in Florence County after a man held another man at gunpoint inside his car.

      The Florence County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened around 9:30 Thursday night in the parking lot of Flatlander's Bar in Long Lake, Wisconsin.

      The victim told police a man asked him for a light. As the driver turned to get a lighter out of his center console, the suspect jumped into the backseat of the vehicle.

      The victim, along with his four passengers, which included two young children, were forced to drive south on Highway 139. The adult passengers and driver were forced to put their wallets and cell phones on the dashboard. The suspect told the driver to pull over in Newald, located in Forest County, Wisconsin, where he let everyone out of the vehicle unharmed.

      The suspect is described as a Hispanic male 6', 185 lbs, who looks to be in his 30s with short black hair and a light goatee. He was wearing a white shirt with a leather-type jacket and a white and red Chicago Bulls baseball cap.

      The vehicle was found by the Forest County Sheriff's Office three miles south of CJ's Bar.

      Police are also looking for the accomplice who helped the suspect get away. He is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, 5' 8" tall and between 140 and 150 lbs.

      Several officers, including a K-9 unit from Forest County and a fixed wing aircraft from the Wisconsin State Patrol, searced for the suspect, but he was not found.

      Anyone with information is asked to call the Florence County Sheriff's Office at 1-800-235-9897.
