Robbery and Shoplifting

Virginia Beach Police needs assistance in identifying this suspect:

On May 24, 2017 at approximately 2:45 pm, the suspect entered the Beauty Hair Supply located at 4848 Virginia Beach Blvd.  He approached the clerk and asked her for assistance in getting numerous hair clippers. She helped the suspect moved the clippers to the cash register counter.  The suspect grabbed the clippers and began to leave the store without paying for them.  The clerk blocked the front door and advised the suspect he needed to pay for the items, at which point he assaulted her and then knocked her backwards. The suspect fled out the front door with the clippers.

On May 29, 2017 at 2:25 pm, the same suspect entered Ace Beauty & Wigs at 3972 Holland Rd.  He jumped the counter and grabbed a bag of 12 sets of hair clippers and immediately ran out of the store.
