Gunmen in ‘Scream’ masks terrorise hair salon and demand money in horror footage

A gang of armed robbers wearing masks from the iconic horror film 'Scream' left customers and staff terrified after holding up a hair salon in the US.

The men were all reportedly wearing Ghostface masks from the horror franchise as they barged into the King Way Salon in Seattle at around 6pm on Sunday.

Three out of the four suspects were caught on security camera footage after they burst into the salon carrying a handgun.

According to King 5 News, robbers immediately started demanding staff hand over money.

Speaking to the news station, salon owner Jenny said the suspects simply shouted "money, money, money".

Jenny responded by telling the robbers where the money was kept as she feared for the safety of herself, staff and customers.

The suspects then emptied the cash register before robbing several of the customers inside.

Jenny told King 5 News: "When I think about it I’m still, you know, scared right now.

"I have to work no matter what, right. I have my kids, my four daughters. I have to take care of them."

Reports say Seattle police are continuing to search for the suspects but their job is made harder by the horror film masks covering the majority of their faces.

This is not the first time criminals have used the mask of Ghostface from the 1996 hit movie and several sequels.

According to the New York Post, a gang wearing Halloween masks robbed and shot a man in 2010.
