Police hunt large-nosed salon robber

Have your say

A “LARGE-NOSED” man who threatened a staff member before robbing a tanning salon is being hunted by police.

The thief entered the Tanz tanning studio in Granton Road at about 6.15pm on Monday and threatened a woman worker.

He then made off towards Boswall Green with a three-figure sum of cash.

The suspect is described as white, with a British accent, in his early 20s and 6ft 4in with a slim build.

He has a large nose and was wearing a black jacket, possibly with a North Face logo on it, black Nike tracksuit bottoms, dark trainers with white soles, a black beanie hat, a black scarf pulled up over his face and black gloves.

Detective Sergeant Lynsey Thomson said: “This robbery left the member of staff who was working at the time feeling anxious and frightened.”
