Police say a masked gunman forced his way into downtown Salt Lake City home and stole a woman's small household safe.

The break-in occurred just before 11 p.m. Saturday when the suspect — described as 5-foot-8, medium build and wearing a blue jacket, blue sneakers and carrying a blue backpack — brandished a handgun, took the safe and fled on foot.

The 51-year-old woman living in the home near 300 East and 100 South was unharmed.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 801-799-3000.
