Police are looking for a knife-wielding man who robbed the Gamestop store in southeast Salt Lake City Monday evening.

Detectives say the suspect, described as about 25 years old, 6-foot-1, heavy in build with a full beard, was wearing jeans, a black shirt, a purple hat and carrying a brown laptop computer bag when he walked into the store at 2263 S. Highland Drive about 9 p.m.

The suspect then approached the counter and threatened clerks with the knife as he demanded and received an unspecified amount of money.

He fled the store on foot.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000.
