A GANG armed with a hand gun raided a hair salon last night (Tuesday).

Three men burst into Changes in Marsden Road, WGC, at around 8.15pm and demanded the takings.

Staff and customers were threatened with a silver pistol during the robbery.

The men then ran off towards Gosling Sports Park.

Police have arrested a 17-year-old boy who currently remains in police custody but are requesting the public's help to trace three suspects.

One man is white, around 5ft 8, medium build with brown eyes. He had a black scarf over the bottom of his face and wore a black long-sleeved hooded top.

A second man is black and the third is white.

Pc Dan Harman said: "This has been an extremely distressing experience for people inside the shop which has left them shaken up.

"I am urging anyone who may have seen the suspects enter or leave the shop, may have seen three men acting suspiciously in the area or knows anything about the incident to please come forward."
