BOUNTIFUL, May 10, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Bountiful police have identified the suspect they believe fled Bountiful Pawn after a May 4 robbery during which a second robber was fatally shot by a clerk.

The at-large suspect in the robbery is Alexyanis Cutino Jimenez, a 30-year-old Hispanic male with ties to Texas and Florida, police say.

Police say his partner, who died at the scene, was Kleydys Arbolaez-Hernandez, 40, from Denver.

“On Friday, 5-4-18, two suspects entered Bountiful Pawn and 135 South 500 West,” says a statement released by the Bountiful Police Department on Thursday.

“One suspect pointed a handgun at a store clerk and began ordering the clerk to lay on the floor, while the second suspect moved to the merchandise area.┬áDuring the moment when the armed suspect was distracted, the clerk retreated to a storage area and drew his concealed weapon,” the police statement says.

“The armed suspect pursued the clerk to the room and pointed a gun at him. The clerk fired at the suspect, striking and killing him. The second suspect fled the area and was not located.”

Jimenez was identified leaving the Denver area on or about May 1 with Arbolaez-Hernandez to drive to Utah, the BPD statement says.

Jiminez, still at large, is wanted on a warrant issued on May 9 in Oklahoma, and is being sought nationwide, the statement says.

He is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 140 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He was seen leaving the Bountiful area on the day of the shooting driving a white 2005 Saturn Vue.

Jimenez should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who has information on him or sees him is asked to call 911, and to not make contact with the suspect.
