Watertown Police seek a man who held up a hair salon Wednesday evening with what turned out to be a gun that shoots blanks. Shortly after 7 p.m., a man wearing a mask came into a busy Behind the Hair salon on Main Street and robbed it with what appeared to be a gun, said Watertown Police Lt. James O’Connor
“He fired a round and we were able to recover a casing,” O’Connor said. “It was determined it is in fact a starter pistol round.” The man left the store from the back, and is believed to have fled on a bicycle heading east toward Watertown Square. The event was very atypical, O’Connor said.
