Werewolf-masked man steals cash from florist

A man wearing a werewolf mask and sporting a baseball bat robbed a Sugar House floral shop Tuesday.

The assailant entered the Flower Patch, 2685 S. 700 East, and threatened to "smash some heads in" if he didn't get money, said the store's assistant manager, Piper DeReus."I thought it was kind of strange when he walked in with the mask on," DeReus said. "I thought he was just trying to scare someone, but then he pulled out a baseball bat. He was pretty rude."

The man took the money from the cash register and sped away in a sedan about 1 p.m., according to the Salt Salt Police Department. Investigators believe he is about 40 years old, 140 pounds and 5 feet, 10 inches.
