Two Salt Lake City financial institutions were robbed Monday afternoon.
Police first responded to a robbery at the Health Care Credit Union at 769 E. South Temple. About 1:31 p.m., a white man in his 30s approached a teller and intimated that he had a weapon, though one was never seen, said Salt Lake City police Sgt. Robin Heiden. He was skinny, stood about 5-foot-8, had dirty blonde hair and wore a blue baseball cap, a blue hoodie and black glasses, Heiden said.
The second bank robbery occurred about 3:34 p.m. at the Bank of Utah at 711 S. State St. The police suspect a Latino man — about 26 to 30 years old — robbed the bank; he also intimated that he had a gun, Heiden said. He then fled southbound on foot.
He stood about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7 and had short to balding, possibly reddish, hair, and a short reddish goatee, Heiden said. He wore a big black puffy coat, black pants and a big black backpack, the sergeant added.
Both the Health Care Credit Union and the Bank of Utah had been hit before in the past two weeks, but by different suspects than the ones on Monday, Heiden said.
Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to call the Salt Lake City police at 801-799-3000.
