HAMILTON, Ohio -- A 54-year-old man arrested for robbing a Hamilton hair salon on Friday is believed to be responsible for two other robberies in area over the past three days.

According to investigators with the Hamilton Police Department, Davis entered the salon on North East Street at about noon Friday and demanded money. While brandishing a knife, Davis grabbed a female employee by her arm and made her open the register and remove cash, witnesses told police.

He then fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.
