Beauty supply robbery caught on camera

OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities are searching for an armed robbery suspect who was caught on tape pulling a gun on two women.

It happened Friday evening at Sally Beauty Supply near Northwest Expressway and Council.

Police said a man pulled a gun on two women working in the store.

He got away with several hundred dollars in cash and a couple hundred dollars worth of hair clippers.

However, this wasn’t a random robbery and the man wasn’t a complete stranger to the two women.

“Both girls said that they had seen this guy at least three times prior to the robbery,” OKC Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said. “That he had come in pretending to shop for items, more than likely casing the business.”

The man didn’t wait for all the customers to leave the store before he pulled out his gun though.

“There are two other customers, you can see, in the store at the time the robbery occurs,” Wardlow said.

Police said it was lucky that no one was hurt and they’re hoping the surveillance footage helps land the suspect behind bars.

“This is a very dangerous situation, a dangerous man,” Wardlow said. “We want to get him caught. Anyone who knows who he is, contact police.”

Police said the suspect drove away in a black car with chrome bumpers.

If you recognize him or have a tip, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
