Surveillance footage captured a Bronx barber getting robbed for nearly $30,000 in stolen items last Thursday.
In the video, the suspect walks into the barbershop with a small, black bag and immediately approaches the 27-year-old barber from behind while taking out his pistol. Customers at the shop seem to remain calm as the robbery suspect holds the bag as the barber starts placing items into it.
When the suspect started exiting the barbershop, the barber attempted to grab the bag before the thief turned around the threatened to use his weapon. The suspect reportedly stole four gold chains, a Rolex watch, a ring, a gold bracelet, two cellphones, and $700 in cash. The stolen items were valued at $28,500.
The police have not apprehended the suspect but hope the above video will help identify and capture the male. The NYPD has described the robber as being between 30 to 35 years old and 6 feet tall.
