  Park City police are pursuing  a suspect in an armed robbery of Flanagan's on Main Street Sunday morning. Police responded about 11:15 a.m. to a 911 call from Flanagan’s Irish Pub and Restaurant at 438 Main.  An employee reported that he confronted a suspect, who was loading expensive bottles of wine into a duffel bag from a basement storage room.  In response, the suspect threatened the employee with a revolver before fleeing out the back door to Swede Alley.   The victim didn’t see where the suspect went from there.
