KNIFE-WIELDING MAN GRABS COURIER IN DOWNTOWN S.L.

A man apparently upset with women approached a female courier on a downtown Salt Lake sidewalk Monday morning, put a knife to her throat and yelled an epithet about females.

A Salt Lake police report indicates the man, described as "clean cut" and "very angry," came up to a Federal Express employee about 9:30 a.m. as she was delivering packages near 200 West and 100 South.He then grabbed the woman, 38, by the right arm, held a large pocket knife under her chin and said, "In the next life women will be snakes slithering in the dirt."

The report says the man then fled. The woman was uninjured, and she told police she did not know the individual.
