Clermont police are looking for a man who allegedly robbed a beauty salon Monday evening.

The robbery occurred sometime before 5:30 p.m. at the Beauty Nail Spa in the Vista Center at 4420 S. US Highway 27, Suite 3.

According to police, a light-skinned male, between 5-feet, 10-inches and 6 feet tall, weighing between 210 to 230 pounds and wearing a mask, entered the business with a black handgun and demanded the owner open the cash register.

The man grabbed an undetermined amount of money and left the store on foot. A police search failed to turn up the suspect.

Police add the suspect might have been wearing gloves.
