PROVO — Provo police are asking for help to identify two men who attempted to rob a convenience store Monday.
Two men wearing ski masks entered the Walkers convenience store at 980 W. Center Street at about 10:45 p.m., according to the Provo Police Department. Investigators said a clerk told them one of the men pointed a gun at her while demanding cash.
“The suspects fled the store after the employee told them the cash was locked in a safe she did not have access to,” a post on the Provo police Facebook page reads.
Investigators described the man who held the gun as being Hispanic and between 20 and 30 years old. In addition to the ski mask, he was wearing dark pants and a long-sleeve black shirt with a yellow, gold and gray pattern. He is about 5-feet-5-inches tall and of a medium build with a black tattoo on the right side of his neck, according to police. The clerk told officers that the man spoke with an accent.
The second man is believed to be about the same age, police said. They described him as being about 6-foot-2 and of a medium build. He was wearing black pants, a black coat and red knit gloves in addition to the ski mask, according to investigators.
The men may have left in a silver or beige Chrysler 200 series sedan, according to police.
Anyone with information about the attempted robbery or identity of the men can contact the Provo Police Department at 801-852-6210.
