The man ran from the store, dropping some money on his way out, and headed down 2300 East. Police arrived shortly and began a search, but they were not able to find the suspect, Hoyal said.

The suspect is described as either Polynesian or American Indian, 5 foot 7 inches and 190 pounds. He was wearing a burgundy sweater, dark pants and a hat with ear flaps. He also wore gloves.

Anyone with information should call 801-743-7000.
