SHERMAN OAKS—The Los Angeles Police Department are searching for two men who stole the wallet of an employee at the Star Lash Beauty Bar, a local Sherman Oaks beauty salon on January 21.

The salon, located at 15149 Ventura Blvd., was closed on January 21 in observation of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. In footage obtained by KTLA news, the female employee is seen on video surveillance entering the shop and leaving her purse at the front desk in the salon.

The woman walks to the back of the store to begin work, when a man came through the backdoor of the salon and took the woman’s wallet from her purse at the front desk. The suspect attempted to leave the front door and after discovering it to be locked, he returned to the back and the employee confronted him, asking him if she could help him.

The suspect created a diversion before leaving, as his accomplice sat waiting at the back door. Video surveillance shows the two men checking other business doors nearby. Anyone with information on the suspect are asked to contact the LAPD.
