Woman robbed while pumping gas for gas
Just a reminder to stay alert while at the pump, since it can be a pretty vulnerable spot. With gas prices people are sure to try all sorts of crazy tricks to try to get gas cheaper, and for BG's that could include robbery.
SALT LAKE CITY — A woman was held up during a fill-up.
The woman was pumping gasoline at a station south of downtown Sunday morning when a man stuck something in her back, told her it was a gun and ordered her to start filling up his sport utility vehicle instead of her own car, said Salt Lake City police Detective Jared Wihongi.
"This is definitely not common," Wihongi said Monday.
The woman put $15 worth in the other vehicle's tank before her debit card reached its limit.
Wihongi said surveillance video at the station showed two men in a large, white sport utility vehicle with Wyoming license plates. They could face aggravated robbery charges.
The woman was so shaken up by the incident she didn't call police until about three hours later.
At least they only got 15 bucks, which theses days is what, 4 gallons? Good for maybe 50 miles for them.
And Dial-A-Prayer doesn't usually do a lick of good when you call it 3 hours after the armed robbery occurs.
