An attempted extortion was reported by a business on Park City’s Main Street on Tuesday.


The Historic Park City Alliance says a local business reported an individual entered their store on Monday, walked a few feet inside, and loudly claimed to not be able to shop there.


The individual later called the store and told the employee who answered the phone they would be posting negatively on social media about their experience and would also be using the employee’s name.
