Salt Lake City police on Tuesday had one bank robbery suspect in custody but continued to look for two others in a second holdup.

Police spokeswoman Robin Heiden said that about 12:40 p.m. Monday a Latino man in his late 30s, 5-foot-7, thin and wearing a black beanie-style cap, black coat and black T-shirt entered the Bank of Utah at 711 S. State St. He approached a teller and demanded and received money.

The man then fled the bank on foot, running east on 700 South. Police later located the 40-year-old suspect, arrested him and booked him into Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of robbery.

Still at large were two men who arrived at the Brighton Bank branch in a taxi cab about 12:30 p.m. Monday. One of the men entered the bank, at 1420 S. 300 West, demanded and received a bag of money.

However, when he fled the bank and tried to re-enter the waiting cab, a dye pack inside the bag exploded. Both suspects then fled the scene on foot.

One suspect, the one who entered the bank, were described a white male adult with a balding or shaved head, a brown stubble beard and moustache. He was wearing a tan hooded sweatshirt, gray shirt and blue jeans.

The second suspect was only described as a white male adult.

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