HOOPER, Utah — Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating two suspects involved in an armed robbery Sunday night in Hooper.

Officials with the Davis County Sheriff’s Office said the victims were provided a remote location to meet up for the purchase of a vehicle. When they arrived, two Caucasian men wearing white masks and driving a red 4-door sedan held them at gunpoint.

Deputies said the suspects got away with cash but did not take the victims’ vehicle.

A description of both suspects was provided:

  • Suspect 1 — mid-30s Caucasian male with short brown hair and facial hair, wearing a white mask, blue shirt and blue jeans
  • Suspect 2 — Caucasian male in his late 20s with short brown hair, wearing a white mask, rainbow/tie dye shirt, beige jogger style pants and sandals

A photo of the suspects’ vehicle was also released.

Anyone with information about the incident has been asked to call Davis Dispatch at 801-451-4150.

“When buying or selling any item to a stranger, insist on meeting at a public location in the middle of the day. Many law enforcement agencies have dedicated areas equipped with safe trade stations that have video surveillance,” read a Monday morning Facebook post from the Davis County Sheriff’s Office.
