OREM -- Police are looking for a man who hit two businesses Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the man entered Milo Sports at 359 E. University Parkway around 3 p.m., grabbed the store clerk from behind and demanded money. That's when a customer came in, and the clerk yelled he was being robbed. The suspect then left empty-handed.

Between 3:10 p.m. and 3:15 p.m., he entered White Elegance at 560 E. University Parkway. He pretended to be interested in a statue. When the employee put the statue down, the man grabbed her from behind and demanded money.

He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
