LOGAN An officer suffered a broken leg Friday while arresting two men suspected of robbing a bank.
A man handed a teller a note at Zions Bank, 133 E. 1400 North, about 9 a.m. and demanded money and claimed he was armed, said Logan Police Capt. Eric Collins.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the man ran to the parking lot where a second man was waiting in a car, Collins said. Officers arrived and blocked all the parking lot entrances.
The men got out of their car and tried to run, Collins said. One man got about 100 yards before being Tasered by officers and arrested. The second ran about 300 yards before being tackled by police and arrested.
The officer who tackled the man, a North Park police veteran, suffered a broken leg, Collins said. After tackling the man, the hard landing resulted in a stress fracture to the officer's lower leg.
"He'll be out of work for a little while," Collins said.
Despite the pain, the officer was able to subdue the man and hold on to him until other officers could catch up.
Javin James Kunsman, 19, and Kelly James Muir, 23, both from Cache County, were taken into custody. Collins said detectives did not believe the men are connected to any other robberies, but the FBI was assisting in the investigation.
