Clinton woman robbed at gunpoint in store parking lot

CLINTON — Police are searching for a man who robbed a woman at gunpoint in a grocery store parking lot.

The 34-year-old woman told police she had just finished shopping at the Fresh Market store, 2062 W. 1800 North, around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and was returning to her car when she was approached by a man, said Clinton Police Sgt. Dave Valentine.

The woman said the man pulled out a small handgun, opened her car door and took her purse, which contained her ID and an undisclosed amount of money.

Valentine said the robber is described as a white male, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 240 pounds and wearing a "hoodie-style" jacket. He was last seen driving a white two-door passenger car — possibly a Mitsubishi Eclipse — with tinted windows, a sun roof and a rear fin.

Anyone with information about the case should call Clinton police at 801-614-0800.
