SANFORD, Fla. - A Seminole County man was arrested after police say he stormed into a Sanford hair salon and pointed a gun at a little girl's head.

Police say Charles Jones was caught on video going into the salon on Hiawatha Avenue in Sanford last month, pulls a gun out of a bag and points it at the 5-year-old's head.

In the video released by police on Tuesday, Jones then grabbed the girl's mother and threw her down on the ground, hitting her with his gun and took the wallet from her purse running off a short time later.

Jones was arrested on charges of robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
