The 24-year-old Minnesota man was taken into custody and booked into Salt Lake County Jail. He was being held Friday in lieu of more than $9,000 bail on suspicion of first-degree felony aggravated robbery, second-degree felony counts of possession of heroin and aggravated assault, and numerous misdemeanors ranging from criminal trespass, theft of services and possession of drug paraphernalia to child abuse.

In the robbery last week, the suspect allegedly stole the purses of two women at gunpoint and then fled in a vehicle.
