Police are on the lookout for a suspect that robbed the Famous Hair salon on Ga. Highway 138 Monday morning.

The suspect is described as a skinny black male about 6 feet tall, who was last seen wearing black pants and a grey hoodie.

Dispatchers recieved a call around 9:18 a.m. about the robbery. The suspect had come into the hair salon, located in the Rockdale Square shopping plaza, and initially asked the only employee in the store about recieving a hair cut. He then demanded money from the employee.

According to Conyers Police Department Capt. Scott Freeman, the suspect did not brandish a weapon nor threaten about having a weapon. He reportedly did keep one hand in the pocket of his sweatshirt and the hood of his sweatshirt on.

After demanding the money, the suspect was seen running off towards Honeybaked Ham. Police set up a  perimeter and a K-9 unit was brought in to track the suspect, but no one was located in the woods. "It’s possible suspect may have gotten into a car and fled," said Freeman.

Anyone with information about the suspect or this incident can call Conyers police at 770-483-6600 or the Conyers tips hotline at 770-483-TIPS.
