TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, April 4, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Unified Police officials are reviewing surveillance recordings after a man robbed a 7-Eleven in Taylorsville.

Officers responded to the convenience store, at 4684 S. Redwood Road, shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

“The clerk was doing a money drop in her safe, and an unknown man entered the store and demanded the money, and threatened personal harm to her if she didn’t hand over the money,” said Lt. Ken Malone, Unified Police Department.

“He didn’t threaten her with a weapon, didn’t use one, none was seen, he just threatened bodily harm to her.”

The man, who was wearing a ski-type mask, a dark hoodie and dark clothing, took the money and left, heading north or northwest, Malone said.

“There’s a strong possibility he had a car waiting or got a ride from somebody,” he said, adding that the suspect appeared to be Caucasian, but almost all of his face was hidden.

“He was a tall guy, average build is all we have right now,” Malone said at the scene. “We are reviewing the surveillance now.”
