Salt Lake's so-called "Top Gun" bandit struck again Tuesday afternoon, this time taking cash at gunpoint from a Taco Time restaurant at 46th South and Redwood Road.
A Salt Lake sheriff's spokesman said the gunman entered the restaurant at about 3 p.m. and demanded money from the cash register. He then ordered the lone employee to lie down at the rear of the store and count to 100.The man is considered responsible for at least six other robberies in the past week, most involving fast food stores. He has been dubbed "Top Gun" because of the baseball cap he wears with those words emblazoned on the front.
The man, who displays a handgun during the robberies, is described as being about 55 with gray hair, a mustache and dark eyes. He is believed to be about 5 feet 10 inches tall and has a husky build.
The robber tends to strike between 3 and 6 p.m. and chooses small business establishments.
