SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, April 18, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — A 7-Eleven convenience store was robbed late Tuesday night, and police are hoping someone may have seen something that will help in apprehending the suspects.

Salt Lake City Police Lt. Dave Cracroft said two males entered the store, at 960 W. North Temple, at about 11:30 p.m.

One man was armed with a handgun and demanded money from the till. The clerk complied.

“We got phone calls from the clerk, reporting a robbery in progress at the store, so we got there pretty quickly,” Cracroft said.

No one was injured in the incident.

The suspects, both white males, wore masks with skulls on the face.

The first suspect is described as 6 feet 2 inches tall, wearing a green jacket, jeans, and was armed with a handgun. The second suspect is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a black jacket, jeans and black and green gloves.

The robbers fled with the money, and police aren’t sure exactly where they were headed, but Cracroft said, “We found some clothing items in the park across the street.”

Investigators will be viewing video from the store and any nearby businesses.

Anyone who has any information about this incident or who may know the whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Salt Lake City Police at 801-799-3000.
