Salt Lake City police are seeking the public's help in the arrest of a gunman suspected in at least three convenience-store robberies on Christmas Eve.
The first of the holdups occurred about 7:15 p.m. at a 7-Eleven store, 309 E. 400 South. Police say a white man, 6 feet tall with a thin build and wearing all black including a hooded sweatshirt and ski mask showed a handgun to the clerk and demanded cash. He left on foot, walking westbound.
About 20 minutes later, the same robber is believed to have held up another 7-Eleven at 705 E. Third Ave. He also is suspected of having struck a third time at 8 p.m., robbing a Tesoro clerk at 874 E. 1300 South.
