Man with pistol robs Main Street restaurant, prompting manhunt
A man brandishing a pistol robbed a Main Street restaurant Sunday, the Park City Police Department said, prompting a hunt for the perpetrator in Old Town and elsewhere during what otherwise appeared to be a pleasant Easter morning along Main Street.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, said the department received the report at 10: 30 a.m. Flanagan’s on Main was readying to open for business when an employee found the man on the basement level wearing a half of a ski mask, Kirk said. The employee confronted the man. The suspect then pulled out a pistol, Kirk said. The man left out a back door onto Swede Alley, he said. There were no customers inside at the time, Kirk said.
Kirk said the suspect is white, 5 foot, 8 inches tall and has a stocky build. He was wearing a dark green Carhartt jacket, a hooded sweat shirt, black pants and black shoes. The suspect remained at large at approximately 1 p.m.
The Police Department said he stole an unknown number of bottles of expensive wine.
Law enforcement vehicles remained on Swede Alley into the afternoon as the investigation continued.
