Police are on the lookout for the man masked in a faked beard who robbed a Bridgeport salon at gunpoint on Sunday night.

Employees and customers of Paradise Beauty Salon were pretty shaken up when police responded to the shop at 763 State St. at 7:35 p.m. on Sunday after receiving a 911 call reporting a robbery.

A 44-year-old woman said the robbery pulled out a gun and ordered everyone to the back of the building.

Witnesses said he is 5-feet-11, has a medium build and brown eyes. He was wearing a fake black beard, blue jeans, a black leather jacket, a dark hooded shirt and dark sneakers with white laces, according to police.

After the robber left the salon, the victim noticed $200 in cash and a gold iPhone 6S missing.

Police searched the area, but could not find the robber.

Anyone with information should call the Bridgeport Detective Bureau at (203) 581-5201.
