CRIME BLOTTER: $1,500 in Hair Extensions Stolen From Flatbush Ave. Shop

PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS — Police are looking for two people wanted for stealing 20 packages of hair extensions from a Flatbush Avenue variety store, NYPD officials said.

A 38-year-old worker at the 717 Flatbush Ave. shop said the two people, a man and a woman, entered her shop just before 5 p.m. on Saturday, took the bundles of hair from a shelf and fled without paying.

The pair then jumped in a black Honda Civic with Pennsylvania plates and fled east on Parkside Avenue, police said.

The worker estimated the hair is worth approximately $1,500 in total. No suspects have yet been identified in the theft.

A worker tried to stop him from leaving, but the suspect told him: “If you stop me, I will cut you with my knife.” The suspect kicked and damaged the supermarket’s exit door and fled. Police later arrested the man, who has been charged with robbery, menacing and harassment, among other charges, court records show.
