November 25th, 2008 A robber holding a butcher knife, wearing tan underwear to hide his face struggles with a golf shop assistant.
Police think a man who tried to rob a golf shop yesterday may have done a similar thing at another golf course last week.
At first, Assistant PGA Pro Scott Flick thought it was a bad joke.
"He comes at me with a plastic grocery bag in one hand and a knife in the other saying, ‘Money. Money.' And I said, 'Are you kidding me?'"
Surveillance video shows the man walk into the pro shop at the Central Valley Golf Course in South Salt Lake. With tan underwear on his head and a knife in his right hand, he encountered Flick in the office.
"He looked intoxicated. He stumbled around. He could barely get the 'money' out. He said, 'money, money' twice," Flick said.
Flick fought back. "He came at me with one step, and that's when I took his hands up in the air," Flick explained.
Surveillance cameras caught the struggle on tape; the two ended up in the closet. "[I] had his hands here, gave him a bit of a hip check and banged it down here," Flick said.
Flick received cuts on both hands and on his ear from the butcher knife. He described the knife as about 8 to 10 inches long.
"It broke off cleanly at the handle. It was laying on the floor," he said.
"Teed off," Flick pushed the man out the door. "I said, 'You have one chance to go and I'm calling the cops,'" he told us.
Outside, two golfers chased the man with golf carts and held him down in the grass until police arrived.
Officers took Barry Kramer to jail. Kramer is also a suspect in another robbery last week.
Surveillance video from Mick Riley Golf Course in Murray shows a knife-wielding man, who is also wearing tan underwear on his head. Police say it's possible that man is Kramer.
"To have somebody go into a golf course wearing some type of undergarment on his head and robbing an actual pro shop is odd.
We haven't had anything like that before," said Murray police Detective Kenny Bass.
Murray police are still investigating their robbery. Kramer was booked into jail for aggravated robbery.
