Gunmen Rob Roscoe Village-Area Nail Salon Friday Morning

Detectives are investigating the armed robbery of a Roscoe Village-area nail salon on Friday morning. Investigators believe the hold-up is related to a pattern of similar retail robberies across the city and suburbs.

Two masked men entered 2X10 Nail Salon at 2112 West Roscoe around 11:40 a.m., police said. One of the men brandished a gun as the robbery was announced.

The pair rounded up four cellphones and took money from the register before running away.

Witnesses believe the men jumped into a newer model gray or charcoal-colored Toyota SUV with a license plate that begins with AH317. The vehicle, which was driven by a third person, was last seen westbound on Roscoe.

The men who entered the store were described as black males, 14- to 18-years-old, 5’8” to 6-feet tall.

The armed man wore a dark hoodie, blue jeans, black shoes, and a surgical mask. His handgun had an extended magazine, police said.

The second robber had a bandana on his face. He wore a blue hoodie and light-colored pants that have the number “85” on the left thigh with black and white shoes.
