The robbery occurred on Thursday in the 3900 block of Minnesota Avenue NE at Super Elegance Nails and Spa around 1:47 p.m. 

The owner says four women came in and got their nails done. One of the women wanted her money back, claiming there was something wrong with her nails. 

When she was told the salon could only give her a partial refund, she went behind the counter, assaulted an employee and took all the cash they had in the register.
