Police are searching for two men who robbed a crowded Bronx hair salon at gunpoint last week while a surveillance camera recorded the whole incident.
The robbers entered El Truco Hair Salon on Ogden Avenue in Highbridge at approximately 6 p.m. on April 21, cops said. One of the men displayed a black semi-automatic firearm and ordered everyone to the back of the store while the second suspect removed money and property from seven people and placed it in a red and black backpack.

The store's owner told NBC News that there were children with their parents inside the salon at the time of the robbery, including an 18-month-old girl. One of the suspects pointed the gun at the girl because she was crying too much, the owner said.
The suspect carrying the gun is described as a black male, approximately 6-foot-2 and 180 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, a black Yankees cap and black pants.
The suspect carrying the backpack is described as a black male approximately 5-foot-10, 170 lbs. and last seen wearing a black Adidas jacket, a brown hoodie and black Adidas pants.
