Police report the attempted robbery occurred at the Quickstop, around 6:15 p.m. Olsen allegedly told the clerk he had a weapon but not brandish it. He was wearing a camo hat, hoodie and khaki pants.

Utah State University sent out a Code Blue alert later to warn students of the attempted robbery.

Police were able to obtain security camera footage from inside the student center. It showed a man matching Olsen’s description carrying a backpack, walking through the halls. In another photo, he is seen wearing a Halloween-type mask.

Olsen is being held in jail on $10,000 bail. Formal charges are pending the completion of the investigation.
