Officials safely took a man into custody near 800 South and 200 East around 2:20 p.m. after reports of a robbery.

Due to suspicious circumstances, and statements made by the suspect, the SLCPD called out their Hazardous Devices Unit to conduct an assessment to determine if the bag poses any threat.

It is unreported which bank this is in reference to, however, there are several banks near that area.
According to a witness, Caleb Crandall, officers brought out a shirtless man and put him in the police car. The witness said it makes him feel a little unsafe and on edge.
