Three women have been robbed at gunpoint at a beauty salon on Joseph Pollydore Street, Lodge, but so far no one has been arrested, police said Tuesday.

Investigators said that at about 10:10 pm, two men rode up on a black motorcycle and entered Simone’s Beauty Salon where they robbed a 23-year-old female make-up artist, a 30-year-old female hairdresser and another 25-year-old female.

They stole one gold ring, one LG cellular phone valued at $50,000, one foot chain and one iPhone 8 Plus, one Samsung Galaxy 9 Plus cellular phone, one gold chain valued at $340,000 and three gold finger rings.

“One of the perpetrators dismounted the motorcycle, went into the salon and asked for Sharon. The victims told him no Sharon works there and he then pulled out a black handgun from his pants crotch and pointed same to the direction of three victims,” the Guyana Police Force said in a statement.

The second perpetrator, according to police, then entered the salon and demanded that the victims lay on the floor to which they compiled.

No shots were fired and no one was injured.
