Deputies were dispatched to 1784 Uinta Way to investigate a robbery incident. The victim, an 85-year-old Park City woman, had exited Vessel Kitchen at around 4:45 p.m. and proceeded towards her vehicle.

While getting into the vehicle, an unknown male and female approached the victim from behind and spilled an unknown liquid on both the victim and the vehicle. The two suspects appeared to be helping clean the liquid from the vehicle and the victim’s head. The female suspect reached into the victim’s purse she was carrying and stole the money clip from the purse. The money clip contained cash, credit cards, and the victim’s driver’s license.

The two suspects then ran away from the victim in two different directions. Deputies were unable to find them after searching the nearby area. Camera footage is currently being reviewed, and it remains an active case.
