(KSL News) Salt Lake police are looking for a bank robbery suspect with an unusual tale.

Authorities say the man walked into a US Bank just before 5 pm, handed the manager a note saying his wife was being held hostage and would be harmed if he didn't get some money in two minutes.

But when the manager said he didn't have cash at his desk, the suspect ran off. The kidnapping story proved to be a hoax.
