On Monday evening, a Sky Spa employee in Pittsburgh’s Overbrook neighborhood was pistol-whipped during a robbery. Just before 7:50 p.m., first responders were called to the 2500 block of Library Road. According to the female employee, two masked men pushed their way inside the business while she was letting a customer out the door. Four employees and three customers were on a different floor at the time of the robbery and did not witness the attack.
The victim reported seeing one gun before being hit in the head. It is unclear what, if anything, was taken from the business at this time. This incident highlights the danger of crime in the neighborhood and how vulnerable businesses are to robberies. The employees and customers present during the incident will likely be affected by trauma and fear caused by the robbery.
This event serves as a reminder of how important it is for businesses to implement security measures and proper training to handle potential threats. Businesses should consider installing security cameras, panic buttons, and training employees on how to respond to robberies or other violent incidents. Additionally, local law enforcement should increase patrols in the area to prevent future criminal activity and provide a sense of safety for the community. The safety and well-being of employees and customers should always be a top priority for businesses and law enforcement agencies alike.
