A would-be robber got a stunning response when he threatened to shoot a woman in a Bountiful grocery store parking lot if she didn't hand over her purse.
The woman instead told her 32-year-old assailant to, in so many words, put up or shut up. Foiled, he jumped into a nearby car with two other men inside and began to drive off from the Smith's Marketplace at 555 S. 200 West.
According to Assistant Police Chief Ed Biehler, the suspect had approached the 47-year-old woman as she stood by her car about 10 a.m. Saturday. In a profanity laced demand, he told her, "Give me your money."
