(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A gas station clerk fought off a gunman who was trying to rob his store, and police are still looking for the suspect.

A man with a gun walked into the Sinclair station on South Temple in Salt Lake City late Wednesday, walked behind the counter, and demanded cash.

Instead, the store clerk slammed his cash register shut and began shoving the would-be robber out the door.

The suspect pistol-whipped the clerk in the head and ran away.

The clerk was OK, but the suspect hasn't been caught. He's described as about five-foot-six, average build. He was wearing a ski mask and hooded sweat shirt.
