Wig-wearing robber strikes beauty store

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A robber wore his own wig into an East Memphis beauty supply store when he robbed it Monday afternoon.

Memphis Police Department said the robbery happened at Sally's Beauty Supply on Park Avenue around 12:45 p.m.

Officers said the man wore a spiked black wig during the robbery.

"I'm just glad that we were out of there on time," customer Marina Jackson said.

Jackson and her friends went out the door just before the robber went into the store.

Nobody got hurt during the robbery.

"It's not OK to just take from other people," Lauren Goldstein said. "It's pretty scary that something can happen in the middle of the day, like it's broad daylight."

Police haven't yet said what was stolen. As for Jackson, she has words for the man who robbed the store.

"If you got enough energy to rob a beauty supply store in broad daylight, you got time to go and find a job," Jackson said.
