SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 24, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman in a Salt Lake City gym parking lot threw hot coffee in the face of a man who approached her car carrying a gun, police said.

Salt Lake City Police detective Greg Wilking said the incident happened at approximately 7 a.m. in the parking lot of Anytime Fitness, a 24-hour gym at 2100 S. 2332 East.

Wilking said the woman was getting out of her car when the man came towards her with a gun visible. She threw hot coffee in his face and he ran to a tan SUV, then drove off.

He said the suspect is described as a Hispanic man wearing dark clothing and dark glasses.

Wilking added police don’t think the woman knew the man, and he didn’t say anything to her. She didn’t see the vehicle’s license plate or the direction he drove in.
