• Robbers sought after holding hair salon customers at gunpoint


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Orange County deputies said they are searching for two men who burst into a PCL Hair Salon on 45th Street and held the people inside at gunpoint Sunday evening.

    "He said 'If you don't lie down on the floor, I'm going to shoot you,'" said salon owner Chisnor Charlite.

    Charlite said he faced a gun to his head during the robbery.

    "He put a gun behind my head and he said to me, 'Lay down,'" Charlite said.

    The sheriff's office said the two men got away with money and cell phones from four people inside the salon, and then ran away.

    "We established a perimeter. [We] had our helicopter in the air with our K-9 to try to track these people," LT. Paul Hopkins of the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

    "I'm very happy nobody not really hurt, because that's a good favor for me. God bless us," Charlite said.

    Investigators said they hope to make an arrest before the gunmen strike again.
