The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery attempt at a Shalimar business that took place Tuesday morning (December 28th).
Employees at the Hair Hut at 38 8th Street say a man putting on a mask entered the business with a silver handgun around 9:45 a.m. and demanded money. He left without taking anything.
OCSO deputies quickly set up a perimeter and brought in a K-9 unit to try to track the subject, who is described as a very dark-skinned, tall, thin black male in his mid-twenties. He was wearing a dark winter hat with fur trimmed ear flaps and a dark jacket with matching trim and big boots. No one was hurt.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850-651-7400, OCSO Criminal Investigations Division at 609-2000 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863- TIPS.
