A wannabe robber had an awkward encounter when he tried to hold up an Atlanta nail salon, but failed miserably as the staff and customers ignored his pleas to get on the floor and give him all their money.
Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta are searching for the man who attempted to rob Nail1st on Piedmont Road on Monday afternoon.
Video of the incident shows a man with his hand in a bag walking inside before shouting, ‘Get on the ground!’ and ‘Give me your money!’ to a group of women, who appear to be customers and employees.
No one budged.
The women continue minding their business, ignoring the thief’s demands.
The CCTV footage shows the man walking into the salon sporting a blue hat, sunglasses and blue pants, with his hands in his bag.
When the workers ignored him, the criminal changed tactics, walking over to a man working behind a counter.
Instead of handing over any money, the unbothered employee answered the phone that was ringing and walks away.
Eventually, one of the women stood up, put her hands up and walked slowly outside.
