Police appeal after robbery at Hayfield hairdressers

House to house inquiries are continuing after a robbery in Hayfield yesterday (Wednesday 29).

The robber went into Clippers Hairdressers, in Church Street, at around 5.20pm and demanded that the female member of staff put cash from the till into a white plastic bag he was carrying.

He left the shop and turned left, walking off along Church Street. The woman was the only person in the salon at the time.

The robber is described as white, slim and around 5ft 10ins tall. He had a large earring in one ear and wore a navy blue hat, navy blue jacket and pale jeans. He had short, mousy coloured hair.

Police, including a dog unit, searched the area but did not find the robber. House to house inquiries were carried out last night and will continue today.

Anyone with information should call police on 0345 123 3333 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
