CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Police are looking for two men who were involved in a robbery at the Hair Cuttery in the Jefferson Crossing shopping plaza Tuesday night.

The robbery occurred when the two men arrived at the hair salon along Flowing Springs Road in separate cars about 9:12 p.m., according to Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy Victor Lupis.

One man stepped out of his car and stood by the entrance of the business while the second man entered, Lupis said.

The man inside pulled out a handgun, pointed it at employees inside and grabbed a money bag laying on a counter, Lupis said. The gunman also took an employee's purse, Lupis said.

The gunman fled the store and the two men were last seen leaving the area in the two cars, Lupis said. Both cars were white; one may have been a Ford Contour with tinted windows, Lupis said.

The robbery occurred just as employees were getting ready to close the shop, Lupis said. "The employees are very shaken up," Lupis said.

The gunman was described as being black and wearing a baggy red sweater. The man used the hood of the sweater to cover half of his face, Lupis said. The man was about 5 feet, 11 inches tall and in his 20s.

The second man was also black and believed to be in his 20s, Lupis said.
