Camden police say two men stormed a salon and forced a female employee into a trashcan.

Police were left scratching their heads when two men stormed a salon, stuffed an employee into a trash can and took off ... without the woman.

Authorities say that two men in long, black robes stormed into the Zoujati Salon on N. 6th Street in Camden Tuesday morning with a gun and a trash can.

What they did next is truly bizarre.

According to police, the suspects stuffed a female employee who was alone in the salon into the trash can, wheeled her outside and left her on the sidewalk.

One of the suspects hopped in a white Chevrolet Express 1500 Cargo van with tinted windows and a stolen Pennsylvania license plate - number JLJ 6784. The second took off around the block where he was met by his partner.

The van crossed the Ben Franklin Bridge into Philadelphia, police say.
