TREMONTON -- A Las Vegas man is facing charges in connection with a violent robbery in Tremonton earlier this month.

According to the Standard-Examiner, police say Lee Lish, 23, approached the victim and her 2-year-old daughter Dec. 2 as they left the King's Discount Department Store at 2 E. Main St. They say he demanded the woman's wallet, then pushed down the child and held a knife to the woman's throat when she refused.

She then handed over the wallet, and Lish drove away.

The woman gave police a detailed description of the robber and his vehicle, plus a license plate number.

Officers tracked down Lish at a relative's home and arrested him. He is now charged with felony aggravated robbery and assault.

Police say Lish was in Tremonton for a funeral at the time of the crime.
