Police: Serial Salon Bandit Robs Wicker Park Great Clips
CHICAGO — A man who robbed a Wicker Park hair salon at gunpoint Monday morning is likely same man who has struck several other similar businesses around the Chicago area, police said.
In Monday's caper, a man entered a Great Clips in the 1200 block of North Ashland Avenue about 10:45 a.m., police said. Three people were in the business at the time when the man pulled out a handgun and demanded cash from a worker, said Chicago Police spokesman Daniel O'Brien.
After handing a bag over to the worker, the robber fled with $250 north on Ashland and got away in a southbound grey sedan, O'Brien said.
The suspect was wearing a red and gray jacket, blue jeans, a hat and a scarf, O'Brien said.
