(KSL News) Police are looking for a man who robbed a check cashing store with a tire iron. He got away with an unknown amount of money.

The man entered the Check ‘n Go on 757 E. 3300 South just after 10 a.m. He was wearing a green sweater, blue jeans and a handkerchief over his face.

He was carrying a knife and waved a tire iron at the clerk, demanding money. Sgt. Rex Mulholland, Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office, said, "Very often robbers, they stay on the other side of the counter and wait for the cash to be handed to them. He actually jumped over the counter went after the clerk."

Police stopped a car they believed was being driven by the suspect a short distance away, but that turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.

We will have more on this story as it becomes available.
