Armed robbers wearing masks from the slasher film “Scream” held up a Seattle hair salon Sunday.
Three of the four suspects were caught on security camera footage obtained by King 5 News.
The robbers walked into King Way Salon around 6 p.m., brandishing a handgun and demanding cash, the local station said.
“They’re asking me, ‘money, money, money.’ And I said ‘money is over there,’” salon owner Jenny told the station.
The suspects emptied the cash register and robbed several customers, the article said.
“When I think about it I’m still, you know, scared right now,” said Jenny, who didn’t want to give her last name to the station.
“I have to work no matter what, right. I have my kids, my four daughters – I have to take care of them.”
Seattle police reportedly continued to search for the frightening fugitives.
It’s not the first time criminals have donned the mask from the 1996 movie to intimidate their targets.
