Bacon, a transient last known to frequent the area of homeless shelters in downtown Salt Lake City, is described as a balding 5-foot-11, 200-pound white male with blue eyes, a tanned, weathered face and a large nose.

Police have offered $500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case. Anyone with information on this case is asked to call SLCPD at 801-799-3000, or text information using the keyword TIPSLCPD to 274637.
