Police in Bronx are searching for two men wanted in a pair of violent nail salon robberies, and they are hoping surveillance video will lead to an arrest.

The robberies, one in Parkchester and one in Eastchester, happened a little more than a week apart.

In both cases, a woman in the salon was hit with a gun then had her purse snatched.

The incidents happened on October 27, 2013 at Nails At Last on Castle Hill Avenue and on November 5 at Beauty and Nail Salon on Boston Road.

The suspect is described as a 23-year-old black male, approximately 5-foot to 5-foot-6 and weighing 120 to 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket and carrying a knapsack.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

All calls are strictly confidential.
