NEW YORK, June 27 (UPI) -- Police in New York said a man accused of robbing a beauty salon allegedly failed in an attempt to rob a bank just prior to the crime.

Suffolk County police said Anthony Jannace, 54, of Brentwood, attempted to use a handwritten note to rob a Bay Shore Citibank branch at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, but the teller refused to comply, Newsday reported Wednesday.

Investigators said Jannace then entered the Salon Astarte in Bay Shore, less than half a mile from the bank and verbally demanded cash from an employee. He fled with an unspecified amount of cash and was arrested at 3:24 p.m., after being located by a canine officer.

Jannace was charged with one count of third degree robbery and one count of attempted robbery.
