Police are continuing enquiries after an armed robbery at a hair salon in Baillieston yesterday.

At around 4:45pm, two men entered Contour Hairdressers in Main Street, Baillieston armed with tasers and threatened staff demanding money from them.

They made off along Main Street, with several mobile phones and a staff member’s handbag.

There were four female members of staff within the premises at the time of the incident. No one was injured but all have been left very distressed by the crime.

The first suspect is white, in his late 30s, early 40s, around 5 ft. 5 inches in height with a slim build. He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top and navy coloured tracksuit trousers. He is described as gaunt with several teeth missing.

The second suspect is white, in his late 30s, around 5 ft. 5 inches in height. He was wearing a dark coloured top and dark coloured trousers. He too had a gaunt appearance.

Both suspects were wearing gloves.

Officers are in the process of gathering CCTV footage and are speaking to local businesses and residents from around the area.

Constable Holly Canning said: “It’s clear the men’s intention in this instance was to steal the shop’s takings. All the women within the salon have been left badly shaken by this incident.

"I would appeal to people who were in Main Street yesterday around the time of the incident. This is a busy shopping area and I know people will have been out and about and I’m sure the two men will have been noticed as they left the shop and ran off up Main Street. If you have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you, please do pass it on. All information is pieced together and can often lead us to identifying the suspects."
