The gunman was accompanied by two other males, for whom descriptions were not available, when they confronted a 56-year-old man delivering newspapers about 4:20 a.m. on Sunday. The incident took place at 1810 S. West Temple.

The gunman demanded the carrier’s wallet and cell phone. The trio then fled the area on foot.

The carrier was not injured.

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