SALT LAKE CITY – Police in Salt Lake City are looking for the suspect in a Sconecutter robbery Friday evening, and police say he may be responsible for several other robberires.

The incident happened at around 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Sconecutter near 2100 South State Street.

Police say the man, who was armed with a gun, took money from the cash register and ran away on foot towards 2100 South.

According to police, the suspect matches the description of the person who held up the Yogurt Stop on New Year’s night, a Red Mango store and a Baskin Robbins in Sugar House.

Victims described the suspect as a woman based on his voice, but video evidence indicates it’s a man who detectives believe may have changed his voice to give the impression of being a woman.

Police describe the man as being about 25 years old, 5’8″ tall with a slim build. He was wearing a gray hoodie, black-rimmed glasses and an Army-style green knit cap.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
