Someone stole cash from a hair salon in broad daylight Thursday in the South Loop.

A stylist was cutting a customer’s hair at 3:11 p.m. when the male suspect walked into Bespoke Men’s Grooming, 529 S. Dearborn St., and leaned over the counter to empty the register, according to Chicago police and a statement from the salon.

He also took some employees’ personal belongings before walking out to the salon, a spokeswoman said in a statement. The owners had noticed a suspicious person enter the salon the day before and look around for a few moments before leaving.

Bespoke released photos of the suspect captured by a surveillance video and is asking anyone with information to call police or email the salon at
