SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - The Sikeston Department of Public Safety is looking for a suspect in an armed robbery at Sally Beauty Supply.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'7" to 5'10" wearing a hooded black fluffy coat, sunglasses and a bandana covering the lower portion of his face.
He showed a gun and demanded money just outside Sally Beauty Supply at 1213 S. Main about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday while an employee was opening the business, according to Sikeston DPS.
He told cash, the employee's cell phone and fled on foot.
Officers searched the area and local businesses and are still investigating.

DPS detectives are looking into a robbery at a cash loan place in Dyersburg, Tennessee that happened about an hour and a half after the Sikeston robbery with a similar description of the suspect.

However, police have not determined if the robberies are connected.
