Suffolk police are seeking a suspect in a robbery that took place at a local nail salon on Easter Sunday.

The crime took place about 4:34 p.m. at the Rainbow Nail Salon in the 1200 block of North Main Street, city spokeswoman Diana Klink said.

The manager told police that a black male wearing a white mask, black hooded shirt and black pants entered the store, pointed a handgun at the manager and demanded money.
