SANFORD, Fla. -- WFTV obtained surveillance video of a Sanford salon owner and her two children being pushed to the ground by an armed robber.

The video shows the man entering the salon in July, demanding money, and then putting a gun to the back of a child's head. The man then puts the gun under the woman's chin and throws them to the ground.

The man hit the woman after she was on the ground.

Her other child ran out of the store, but the man chased after her and threw the girl back into the store and onto the ground.

The surveillance video helped police catch the man, who they said is in jail without bail.

I get so tired of hearing about crimes against "the children". Crimes are bad when they are against any decent person -regardless of age.
