TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, April 11, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Police are on the lookout for a¬†man who robbed a 7-Eleven early Tuesday morning.

Unified Police Lt. Paul Barker told Gephardt Daily that police were called at 1:38 a.m. to investigate an armed robbery at the store at 3180 W. 5400 South.

Barker said a man carrying two knives with green handles, one in each hand, entered the store and demanded money.

The clerk put an unknown amount of cash into a plastic bag, and the robber fled eastbound on foot. It isn’t known if he had a car somewhere in the area.

A search was conducted with the aid of K-9s, but the suspect wasn’t found.

Barker said the suspect is a white man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 4 inches tall, with a skinny build. He was wearing a black beanie, black jacket, and had “some sort of white cloth over his face like a bandana.”

Police were¬†checking the store’s surveillance video for a clear picture of the suspect.

Barker said if anyone finds a green-handled knife or has any information relating to this robbery, they should call Unified Police dispatch, 801-743-7000.
