Suspect hat

BUTTE- Police are looking for a suspect in an armed robbery of a beauty supply shop.

At 8 PM on Friday, Butte police responded to Sally's Beauty Shop on Harrison Ave. to a call of an armed robbery.

A man allegedly came into the store, grabbed the clerk, took her behind the counter and demanded she give him the money in the register and safe. During the robbery, the man had his hand in one of his pockets which led the victim to believe he was armed with a gun.

The man took the cash and fled on foot before officers arrived. Officers searched the area but did not find the suspect.

The suspect is described as an athletic man wearing jeans, a black hoodie and sunglasses. Butte police believe he was also wearing a black baseball cap with "Hanser's" written on it (similar to the one in the photo.)

If anyone has information on the incident they're asked to contact the department at 497-1120.
