Robbers Hit Females With Pepper Spray, Steal Hair in Greenbelt

Two males pull out pepper spray and make off with hair and money.


Two males made off with hair and currency from Her Import in Greenbelt and sprayed two females with pepper spray on Friday, Sept. 21, according to Greenbelt Police. The robbers fled in a black vehicle, possibly a Buick or Toyota, police said.

"Two females had effects from the pepper spray. One was treated by on scene," according to Officer Kelly Lawson, Greenbelt Police spokesperson.

Lawson said her report just said hair was taken; it did not specify what that meant.

The robbery occurred at 7:41 p.m. at the 7900 block of Belle Point Drive.

The suspects are described as black males, who are 5 foot 5 to 5 foot 9, and 140 pounds; one of them was wearing green contact lenses and a gray hooded sweatshirt, according to police.

I assume the hair was the kind used for hair extensions & weaves. There's a hair-extension studio in the 7800 block of Belle Point Drive, and the raw materials can be very expensive/lucrative.

Thanks, Sherlock Holmes. I was assuming they just yanked human hair out of someone's head.

I thought Belle Point Park was strictly a professional (medical and legal) complex if we're speaking the same complex, next to the American Legion? Saw a tv truck coming out of there yesterday and wondered what was going on?
