A pair of unrelated robberies within an hour of each other kept police from several jurisdictions busy Friday.
Just before 11:30 a.m., a man in his 50s, wearing a black or blue hoodie that said "Hustler" across the front, walked into TransWest Credit Union, near 10600 South and State Street, waited in the lobby for other customers to leave and then asked to speak with the manager, said Sandy police Sgt. Victor Quezada.
When the man went back into the manager's office and sat down, he pulled out a "large handgun" and announced, "This is a robbery. Stay calm or I'll start shooting," Quezada said.
The male Hispanic, who was about 5-foot-6, 150 pounds, with a thin build and mustache, was last seen wearing a ball cap, jeans and dark glasses, Quezada said.
No one was injured in the incident.
Less than an hour after that robbery, two men walked into Kami Hair, 4896 S. Highland Drive, and demanded money. One was armed, according to the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Both suspects were white men in their 40s. One wore a plaid, flannel shirt, a gray hat and had a scruffy beard. The other wore tan sweat pants and a blue shirt and had red hair, according to the sheriff's office.
No one was injured in either robbery. Anyone with information can either call the sheriff's office at 743-7000 or Sandy police at 840-4000.
