SAVANNAH, Ga. – Paint partially scratched off on the door of what the hours of operation used to be for the Posh Nail Salon off of Eisenhower Drive. That will all change after what happened over the weekend.
“They approached one of the other technicians that works in the salon, which had nothing to do with the incident and ask her for the money,” David Huynh, the salon co-owner, said. “She said she is not in charge of the money, she doesn’t have the money, but they would have to come back the next day to speak with management about getting a refund.”
This all happened Saturday night as technicians were finishing up with their last customers who weren’t satisfied with what they received.
“They stated that had wanted to keep their nails,” Huynh said. “They did not want to take the nails off, but they want their money back also. And we said that’s not how it goes. If you don’t want the nails we can take them off and refund you their money.”
But things got out of hand.
“The two individuals, my technicians, that it happened to was females and they were actually about half their size in weight of the suspects that assaulted them,” Huynh said.
The salon co-owner says not only did they assault the employee, but they stole their money and attempted to steal other belongings as well.
Now, the salon owners are changing their hours of operation for security reasons. Huynh said they had felt safe with the gun shop next door, but since it’s moved they’re taking matters into their own hands.
“With their lease being up they moved further down the street, so now we’re kind of vulnerable,” Huynh said. “Now, we’re actually thinking about purchasing a firearm and putting it in the salon for this reason.”
All they want now is to keep this from happening to them again or anyone else.
“We just want people to come forward, to tell CrimeStoppers, to tell police, to tell us who they are so that way they can be punished to the full extent of the law,” Huynh said. “That way this doesn’t happen to other businesses, happen to other individuals.”
