Unknown male Caucasion, 20-30 years old with thin build, attempts robbery of salon using a gun

On Thursday, 10-17-13, shortly before 5:30 p.m. officers were dispatched to the Love Me Lashes salon at 115 Broadway regarding a “man with a gun.” Upon officers’ arrival, the female owner reported that a lone male wearing a light-colored baseball cap and dark sunglasses had entered the salon earlier. The male confronted the owner near the register, removed a handgun from his waistband, pointed it at her and demanded cash. Apparently frustrated with the owner’s delayed cooperation, the suspect fled on foot northbound from the location. No suspect vehicle was seen.

A similar style robbery was committed later in the evening at a local Subway Sandwich restaurant. No further details or photos are being released at this time.

For further information, contact Detective Sergeant Stephanie Selinske: 714-754-4933.
