Man is robbed while using pay phone at Orem store

A man was robbed at a convenience store Monday morning while making a call from a pay phone.

The victim was at the Chevron service station located at 1320 S. State Street at about 10 a.m. when he felt what he believed to be the barrel of a gun shoved in his back, said Orem Police Lt. Karl Hirst.The suspect, whom the victim never saw, demanded money. The victim complied and was asked not to turn around. When he did turn around moments later, the victim saw a beige vehicle leaving the scene. Police do not know, however, if that vehicle is connected to the robbery.
