MIAMI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -
Police are looking for a man who robbed two hair salons in less than a month.
The first incident happened June 25 at Great Clips in Lawrenceburg, Ind. The second at Sports Clips July 5 in Miami Township.
"I heard the door so I turned around and he had the gun in my face. He grabbed me by my arm. He put the gun to the back of my head. He told me to do exactly what he said and he wouldn't blow my brains out," said Jillian Bohannon, Assistant Manager at Sports Clips in Miami Township.
For three terrifying minutes, Bohannon and a co-worker laid on the floor while a man robbed their store.
"He dumped everything into a bag and he told us to count to 100 and I heard him walking out the back," said Bohannon. "I was thinking about my daughter. I have an eight year old. I didn't know if I was going to see her again. I thought about my husband and my family. I was in such shock."
Bohannon described the man as white, 6'2-6'5 and very muscular with a fake beard, sunglasses, long sleeved black shirt, jeans and white gym shoes.
Detective Greg Jenkins with Miami Township police says after a little research, they soon realized the same robber did the same thing at a Great Clips salon in Lawrenceburg Indiana on June 25.
"It's happened twice now that we are aware of and we're concerned it's going to happen again," said Jenkins.
Police say what makes these robberies so brazen is that they both happened in strip malls in broad daylight.
With so many people around they are sure someone saw something. If you have any information about either one of these robberies you are encouraged to contact police.
