Authorities released surveillance footage Wednesday in hopes of tracking down two armed robbery suspects who robbed six businesses in Silver Lake and Highland Park.

The first robbery occurred on Nov. 21 about 2:55 p.m., when the two suspects entered a nail salon in the 3000 block of Rowena Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. The suspects, who were armed with handguns, stole money and personal belongings from the business and customers before fleeing in an older model white Chevrolet Suburban or Chevrolet Tahoe with after-market HD headlights and a trailer hitch, according to police.

Between Nov. 26 and Dec. 6, the same suspects robbed five other locations in Highland Park and Silver Lake, police said.

One suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 30-40 years old, 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a Dodger baseball cap, gray hoodie and blue jeans, and he wore a utility reflective vest during one of the robberies, according to the police.

A group of brazen robbers are suspected of robbing multiple nail salons during the middle of the day, stealing from both employees and customers. Kim Tobin reports for the NBC4 News at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8 2020.

An accomplice is described as a Hispanic man, 30-40 years old, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 240 pounds. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, blue sweatshirt, blue jeans and white sneakers, according to police.
