Police are looking for a handgun-toting bandit, possibly female, in the robbery of a southeast Salt Lake City business.

The holdup occurred about 7:20 p.m. New Year’s Day at the Yogurt Stop, 2153 E. 2100 South.

Police say the robber, described as 5-foot-10, 150 pounds, was wearing a dark rain coat with a hooded sweatshirt, and a dark beanie cap over shoulder-length brown hair.

A witness said the robber’s voice sounded like that of a woman, though the person’s face was covered and a gender could not be confirmed.

The robber entered the store and showed a handgun while demanding money. An employee complied and the robber fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
