Female Suspect Shot By Employee During Armed “Take-Over” Robbery

posted on June 23, 2017

“It was a take-over style robbery ... which is much more dangerous. We don't see many of those. It was a very scary situation.”

SLCP Detective Greg Wilking described the harrowing armed invasion at a Quiznos restaurant on Tuesday to the The Salt Lake Tribune. Around 6 p.m. a woman and two men entered the establishment, locked the door, then pulled handguns. Two employees were in the restaurant at the time, one at the counter and one in a back room. While one intruder began emptying money from the registers, the other two began forcing their way into the back.

However, the door had been barricaded by the worker, who had also armed herself—and who began firing. “Because of the severity of the situation,” Wilking said, the employee had little choice. A single bullet hit the female robber, who is in serious condition. Police are searching for her two male accomplices, who fled the scene.
