Knife-Wielding Suspect Tries to Rob Pinehurst Hair Salon
A man brandishing a knife attempted to rob a Pinehurst hair salon Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The suspect entered Elaine’s Hairdressers on McCaskill Road about 5 p.m. and demanded cash from the two employees at the business, according to Capt. Floyd Thomas. He said the two employees told the man that they deal only with debit and credit cards and did not have any cash.
“He went back and forth with them and apparently just got frustrated because they didn’t have any cash and left,” Thomas said.
Thomas said the suspect, described as a heavy-set black man in his 40s, was wearing a toboggan and pulled up his green-and-white-striped shirt to conceal his face when entered the business. He said there were no customers there at the time, and no one was injured.
The man fled in a four-door white car, Thomas said, but police have no model or license tag number. Police searched the area but were unable to locate the vehicle.
The business is near the Pinehurst rescue squad and a couple of blocks away from the police station, Thomas said
He asked that anyone with information to contact Detective Daryl Bender at (910) 295-3141.
