Gunman robs cash — and glasses — from Salt Lake City eye clinic
First Published Feb 07 2012 09:59 am • Last Updated Feb 07 2012 01:45 pm

At least this holdup suspect presumably will be able to see when he counts the cash he stole at gunpoint.

Salt Lake City police say the man walked into the Berner & Buresh Eye Clinic at 250 E. Broadway about 5:45 p.m. Monday. Producing a handgun, he demanded, and received, an undisclosed amount of cash — and grabbed a pair of glasses as he fled the scene.

Police described the suspect as a 30- to 40-year-old Latino male, 5-foot-8 and 250 pounds, wearing a backpack, a red puffy vest jacket — and a new pair of glasses.

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