Bountiful police say a would-be robber was unusually well equipped for crime, but even having a pistol in one hand and a stun gun in the other brought him no ill-gotten booty.
Assistant Police Chief Ed Biehler said the suspect, described as 5-foot-8 to 6-foot Latino or Polynesian male, wearing a ski mask and a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, remained at large Thursday.
The male victim was parked in a lot at 1350 N. Main Street about 10 p.m. Wednesday, reading while he waited for his wife to leave a nearby business.
"Then he heard the driver's side door open. Thinking it was his wife, he turned, only to see the suspect holding a handgun," Biehler said. "He demanded his wallet and money, but the victim said, 'I don't have any [money].' "
