Salt Lake City police on Monday were seeking suspects in a rash of weekend holdups.

Saturday, at 11:42 a.m., a suspect described as black, wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt, dark sunglasses, blue jeans, black shoes and a scarf over his face, entered the Zions Bank at 1635 S. Redwood Road and demanded cash from a clerk.

The clerk complied and the suspect left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. He was last seen running southbound on Redwood Road.

At 7:57 p.m. Saturday, two masked suspects brandishing a handgun entered a business at a strip mall near 1300 West and 500 North and demanded money. The employee ran into a room and locked himself inside and triggered an alarm.

The suspects, both white males in their late teens to early 20s, ran from the scene without any cash. One suspect was 6 feet with a slim build; the other was 5-foot-8 and "chubby," police said.

Finally, a market at 165 E. 900 South was robbed just before 9 p.m. Saturday by a white male in his 20s. He entered the business, raided the cash register and fled on foot with the money.

Police said the suspect was wearing blue jeans, a dark green hooded sweatshirt and a dark beanie-style cap.

Anyone with information on any of these crimes is asked to call SLCPD at 801-799-3000.
