SHARE WOMAN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED IN DOWNTOWN S.L. STORE

A Capitol Hill woman was sexually assaulted by a man who attempted to buy beer after hours in the store where she worked.

After the 42-year-old woman told the man he could not buy the beer at the 210 W. North Temple store, he came toward her with a 12-inch hunting knife and pushed her down on the floor, hit her and sexually assaulted her, a Salt Lake police report said.The woman heard the doorbell, which indicates someone is coming into the store. The sound apparently scared her attacker, who fled. The woman told police that although she heard the bell, she didn't see anyone in the store after her assailant left.
