Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly made sure he was properly groomed before robbing a Philadelphia nail salon.

The unidentified man walked inside Rockland Nails on the 1300 block of Rockland Street at 5:50 p.m. Sunday and asked for a manicure, investigators said. Four employees were working inside at the time.

After his manicure was finished and an employee told him how much it would cost, the suspect pulled out what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun and demanded money, according to police. He then allegedly grabbed an unknown amount of cash from the register and fled eastbound on Rockland Street. No one was hurt during the ordeal.

The suspect is described as a stocky African American man between the ages of 30 and 40, standing 6-feet with a salt and pepper beard. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored baseball hat, dark-colored pants and black and white sneakers.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call Philadelphia Police.
