(KSL News) A woman with a knife walked into a tanning salon in Murray this afternoon and demanded cash from the clerk.

It happened at 4700 South 900 East. Other people who work in the shopping center heard what happened and are shaken, too.

"It is kind of scary," said witness Shawna Tollestrup. "It kind of gives you the butterflies in your stomach a little bit."

Detective Kenny Bass with the Murray Police Department said of the clerk, "She did exactly what she should have done. Nobody got injured. She was the only one in the business. She handled herself very well."

Police don't know how much money the robber took. They're working some leads, hoping to arrest her soon.
