Man attacks 3 women at Wheaton Plaza (Video+Photo)

Montgomery County police are searching for a man who allegedly assaulted three female employees inside Brow Art 23 on Tuesday, October 1 at Wheaton Plaza. Detectives say the man entered the salon around 1:00 PM, and struck up a conversation with two female employees at the counter. He then allegedly physically forced the women into a back room, where a third female employee was working.

After struggling with the suspect, the three women were eventually able to flee from the store and call police. The suspect then fled Wheaton Plaza. Detectives have just released surveillance video of the suspect in the hope that the public can help identify and locate him.
