KENNEDY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - On Monday, Channel 11 talked to a woman who was robbed at the Kennedy Township BoRics.

"I didn't know if I was dying or if I was living. All I knew was that I had to stay calm and do whatever he wanted," said Jessie Kearns.

Most people would take a day or two off to recover, but Channel 11 saw Kearns back at work despite her encounter with an armed robber on Friday.

"I didn't see him cock it, but I heard a click. He said, "I am very serious. Open that register," said Kearns.

Kearns hopes the person who pointed a gun at her is found or turned into police.

"I take it very personal. I hope you're not out there doing it to someone else," she said.

Kearns thinks the person chose BoRics because he saw she was all alone.

"He walked me through the salon and to the back. He took my phone," said Kearns.

Police said the suspect is a 6-foot tall white male in his late 40s or early 50s. He was wearing wire frame glasses and a green army jacket. According to police, he left in a silver or gray four-door sedan.
