Armed, Dangerous And Metrosexual

Downey, CA

There's this guy targeting nail salons in Downey. Hit three of them in the last month. One of them twice. He walks in, pulls a gun, demands cash from the till and wallets from the customers.

So, why nail salons? Have you ever seen a pissed off Vietnamese woman? I don't care what kind of gun you've got, these are not people to fuck with.

The suspect is described as a Latino in his 20s, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. 150 to 160 pounds. Black hair.

And immaculate nails.

I liked this a lot, thanks for writing it.

In Toronto apparently there's a "salon mafia" that runs most of the hair salons in town. The person who told me this when I lived there (of dubious veracity) said the family was from Calabria in Italy. I guess I don't care if it's true or not, but I really like the concept.

I had forgotten about this until I read this post, so thanks. Hair salon mafia. A man could do a lot with an idea like that....

Couldn't resist: "This man is armed and considered dangerous. Do not attempt to do his nails yourself."
