Police Looking for Suspect in Sunrise Beauty Supply Robbery

Sunrise Police are looking for a man who was caught on video robbing a beauty supply store at gunpoint and stealing roughly $1,000 from the register.

Police say the unidentified black male entered the Discount Corner Beauty Supply at 1079 Sunset Strip on Wednesday, May 4 at 1:47 p.m.

The man pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from the register. When the clerk didn't comply, the suspect is seen hitting the victim on the head with the gun.

The suspect made his way to the register and stole roughly $1,000 in cash before leaving.

The clerk, Abdul Aljenabi, said he was about to get down on his knees to pray when the masked robber put the gun in his face.

"I pushed him, he stayed right there and put the gun like this and said 'give me the money,'" Aljenabi said. "I said 'you can't scare me' and he kept saying the same thing and I was very close to him, he was there and I was right there and he pushed me very strong, and he hit me with the gun."

Police say the suspect left in an older model beige 2-door Saturn.

Anyone with information should contact Sunrise Police at (954) 746-3558 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
