Police search for robber of tanning salon

By  | 

Police are looking for a man they say robbed a Lexington tanning salon Monday night and took off running. It happened at the Fusion Tanning Studios on Saron Drive.

No one was hurt, but employees were a little shaken up, and they didn't want to appear on camera. They say the man came into the salon very unassuming and within moments was out the door and took off around the corner.

Employees say they had never seen the suspect before Monday, but he had come in earlier in the evening to ask a few questions about tanning services. They say about ten or fifteen minutes later, he was back and at first spoke so softly, they could barely hear him. Police say there were several customers in the store at the time, but they were all in the back and didn't realize what had happened until it was all over. Employees say the suspect kept his hand in his pocket as though he had a gun.

Police describe the suspect as a white man in his twenties. He's about 5'10" to 6'0" tall. He has light brown to dark blond hair, and a scruffy beard.
