Medford police are searching for a man who claimed he was armed with a gun and robbed a salon on Saturday.
The man entered Salon Chic on North Riverside Avenue just after 4 p.m. and demanded money from the cash register. In addition, the man also robbed the lone female customer in the salon.
The suspect said he was armed, but it is unclear if he had a weapon in his possession at the time of the robbery.
After leaving the salon, the suspect fled south on Riverside Avenue and disappeared before police arrived.
The man is described as a Hispanic or white male, who stands approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall. He appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s. He wore a black pea coat, bright shorts, white athletic shoes and white sunglasses.
His most distinguishing feature was his bald head that looked to be scarred in some way.
