LAYTON — Police are searching for a man who allegedly stole a woman’s vehicle at gunpoint Saturday evening.

Police received a call at about 5:43 p.m. that a woman had been robbed, according to Layton Police Sgt. Clint Bobrowski. The woman, a Salt Lake County resident, was leaving a conference at Davis Conference Center, 800 Heritage Park Blvd., when she was approached by a man displaying a handgun. The man told the woman he needed a ride, Bobrowski said.

The woman got in the car with the gunman, who made her drive to a bank and withdraw money from her account. The gunman then had her drive to a nearby neighborhood, get out, and stole her car. The woman was able to call police once the gunman drove off. She was not injured during the robbery, Bobrowski said.

The stolen car is a 2005, gray Chevy Trailblazer with Utah license plate number D868RL. The man is described as being Hispanic and in his late 20s. Bobrowski said he was wearing a black hoodie and a black baseball cap.

Police are working to obtain security footage from the areas the gunman and woman had traveled to.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Layton police at 801-497-8300.
