An Hirdressing Salon in Brighton, Calif., was closed on Tuesday after two of its customers were arrested for allegedly threatening and robbing a man at gunpoint, police said.
The two men are both described as white and between the ages of 18 and 20.
Police said the victims were robbed at gun point and taken to a local hospital.
Brighton Beach Police said that on March 24, a man called police to report that he was robbed at knifepoint and told police that he had been robbed at a nearby Hijab Shop and was about to be robbed by two men.
Police described the suspects as being in their 20s.
The men were described as wearing dark clothing and carrying a large handgun.
The victim said that when he tried to intervene, the two men allegedly grabbed him and held him at gun range.
The victims was treated for a minor injury at the scene.
Brighton police said that at no time were the two suspects identified by police.
The victim told police, he was told to give his address to police.
He did not give that address and was not cooperative when police requested it, Brighton Beach police said in a statement.
The incident occurred in Brighton’s Brighton Beach neighborhood.
Brighton has a reputation for being a hotbed of crime, and police say they are investigating any other incidents.
A third man was also arrested in the incident, and has been charged with robbery and aggravated assault.
Brighton was not the first neighborhood in which an Hijabi shop has closed in recent months.
Last month, a Brighton woman was arrested after a gun was stolen from a Hijabe, police say.
“Hijabi Hijabs have been a symbol of oppression and exclusion for generations,” Brighton Beach Mayor Paul Kocer said in an email to The Washington Times.
“We hope that this incident will remind the community of this history and help lead to a better community.
Brighton will remain a vibrant and diverse neighborhood, as long as it is safe and healthy.”
