Gunmen rob South Seattle salon employees
Two men tied up a salon owner and two employees at a hair and nail salon on the 5600 block of Rainier Avenue South on Saturday evening, robbing them of jewelry and money.
No one was injured.
Seattle police said the attackers, one with a black and chrome handgun, burst into the salon at 6:10 p.m. and tied the victims, two women and one man. They used scissors to cut off one employee’s bracelet and necklace, and also went through the employees’ purses, before leaving through the back door.
One of the victims broke free and called 911.
Police ask anyone with information to call 206-684-5535.
