CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - Cambridge police released a photo on Thursday of the person they are searching for in connection with an armed robbery and a carjacking.

Officers were called to the scene on Cambridge Street around 12:30 p.m. after the suspect allegedly brandished a gun and demanded money from the owner of Supreme Nails then fled in a stolen car, according to Cambridge police.

“He said give me what you have. I opened the drawer, he took the money, and then he saw my phone, and he took my phone too and he just took off,” the owner explained. She said she and her client were shocked.

The suspect then took off running down Cambridge Street toward the McDonalds where he accused of carjacking a white SUV.

The SUV was later found abandoned in Somerville near the railroad tracks off McGrath Highway.

The suspect is described as being 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a stocky build and dirty blonde hair.

No injuries were reported.

The owner of the salon has been in business for years and said she has never been the victim of a crime until now.

“Now I am going to have my door locked all the time, even in daylight,” she said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police at 617-349-3300.
