Suffolk County police in New York state arrested a Brentwood man who they said robbed a beauty salon after a failed attempt at robbing a bank.
Police say that 54-year-old Anthony Jannace handed a teller at a Bay Shore Citibank a handwritten note demanding cash at 12:30 p.m. When the teller refused to comply Jannace left the bank.
Jannace then entered the Salon Astarte on West Main Street in Bay Shore, less than a half-mile away, at 1:55 p.m. and verbally demanded cash from one of the employees.
She complied and gave him cash from a drawer, though police would not specify how much.
At 3:24 p.m., Suffolk County Police Canine Officer Mark Sacco located Jannace on Mechanicsville Road in Bay Shore and arrested him.
Jannace did not display a weapon and was located after witnesses gave officers a physical description.
Jannace was charged with one count of third degree robbery and one count of attempted robbery.
