CHICAGO (CBS) – A brazen serial bandit has struck another hair salon, this time in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood.

The latest robbery occurred at Great Clips, 1235 N. Clybourn. The manager told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards the gunman came into the store shortly after 10 a.m. and demanded money from the three employees who were on duty. They gave him about $130, and he fled.

There were no customers present, and no one was injured.

The employees say police told them the suspect is believed to be the same person who has robbed several hair salons across the Chicago area, including in Skokie and Niles.
