Little known about alleged shoplifter who threatened officers with knife, police say
MIDVALE — An alleged shoplifter at Wal-Mart threatened loss prevention officers with a knife, police said.
Police said very little is known about the suspect, who is either in his late teens or early 20s, nearly a month after the incident.
A white male entered the store at 7250 Union Park Ave. just before 7 p.m. March 18 and was observed shoplifting in the store, police said. The man had shoulder-length dark hair and was wearing a grey beanie, dark pants and a black shirt with a pink design. He also was carrying a black backpack.
When loss prevention officers approached the alleged shoplifter and tried to detain him, he pulled a knife and held it up to one of the officers, police said. He then fled on foot.
Police released surveillance images of the suspect Tuesday, asking anyone with information that could help identify him to call the Unified Police Department at 801-743-5823.
