Philadelphia Police are searching for a suspect caught on surveillance camera during two violent West Philadelphia nail salon stick-ups.
A store surveillance camera appears to have caught a clean shot of the suspect in the two hold-ups, said Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives.
Around 11 a.m., Thursday, the gunmen burst into the Myly Nail Salon on the 6200 block Lansdowne Avenue, and put a small black handgun to the store owner as she was working on a customer.
The gunman told the woman "to shut up unless you want to die," Walker said, before fleeing with $100.
About two hours later, the same gunman strode into Tanya Nails on the 5200 block of Chestnut, shouting, "Money, money," and holding the store owner and another woman at gunpoint, Walker said.
