Unified Police quickly found and arrested a robbery suspect who allegedly held a gun to the head of a 7-Eleven employee early Wednesday morning.
The gunman walked into the store, at 4637 W. 5615 South, about 4:15 a.m., UPD Lt. Brian Lohrke said. The suspect, wearing dark clothing and with a bandana covering his face, put a pistol to the head of a female clerk and demanded money.
The clerk was able to flee and locked herself into a back room, where she called 911.
A responding officer spotted a male matching the suspect's description, walking on the sidewalk near Kearns High School, about half a mile from the crime scene.
