When a Dallas man decided to rob a beauty supply store just as it was closing last week, I guess he figured he better pick up something for his girl too.
Benitra Jackson tells NBC Dallas she was just about to close for the night when a man wearing a mask burst into the store, pointed a gun, and demanded she and her manager hit the floor.
Surveillance video shows the robber forcing the manager to the floor first, then turning on Benitra.
“And then he threw me on the floor and told me to put the money in the bag. So I just threw the money in the bag then laid back down on the floor,” she says.
Jackson says she gave the robber all of the cash in the register, but he said it wasn’t enough. “He was just saying ‘the change too,’ cause he had kids.”
But even the change wasn’t enough for the frustrated robber. He also demanded weave.
According to a police reporter, Jackson told officers the man said, “My b**** needs some hair extensions, which are the best ones?”
“I was like, really?” Jackson says. “I wanted to laugh, but something was going on and I was in shock. So I was like why are you asking me about the most expensive hair extensions? So I just grabbed any kind for him.”
Thankfully, the robber was finally satisfied and fled the scene. Jackson says she hopes the thief gets caught, and as far as the hair extensions go, she says, “Well, I hope she doesn’t like them.”
SMH. The things people do for money, love, and weave.
