Brazen gunman shops, asks for help, then robs Great Clips
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
BRIDGETON -- A brazen gunman walked into a Great Clips store, asked a worker for help picking out beauty supplies then robbed the salon, police said today.
Bridgeton Police are searching for the gunman and provided a video to see if anyone recognizes the gunman, police said.
About 8:41 p.m., Wednesday, a man walked into the Great Clips at 12238 Saint Charles Rock Road and asked an employee to help him pick out two beauty items. Then, about five minutes later, as the employee was ringing up the items, the man pointed a dark-colored handgun and demanded all of the money out of the cash register, police said.
A second employee walked up to the register and pulled all of the money out before placing it into a plastic bag with the two beauty items and handing it to the gunman, the video shows.
The gunman is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s with blue eyes and short, reddish-blonde hair, police said. He is between six-feet and six-feet, two-inches tall with a slim build.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Bridgeton Police at 314-739-7557 or an anonymous tip line at 314-373-3867.
