Armed robbery at salon

A MAN held up a hair salon with what was thought to be a handgun.

The man threatened two female staff at Zoe Ayres’ salon in Halifax Road, Liversedge, at about 5.30pm last Friday, just before closing time.

He forced them to hand over cash from the till before leaving the shop.

He fled to a waiting trail bike which was parked on the pavement close to the shop.

The rider of the bike made off with the robber as a pillion passenger.

The rider was wearing a white motocross style bike helmet with a peak.

The robber was wearing a black helmet with a white and grey pattern.

No shots were fired and nobody was injured.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery, anyone who saw the bike or anyone with information to contact Det Sgt Matt Hawker on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
