    The front door of the salon was smashed in early Monday.

    A hair salon in Ocean Beach was burglarized twice in one week, according to the owner.

    Eric Legerton said he’s owned the The Sweet  Salon on Bacon Street for over a decade and he’s never any problems.

    Then Monday, he received a call at 4 a.m. from a co-worker who happens to live directly across the street from the hair salon. He told Legerton that he heard the front glass door shatter.

    He said she saw the suspect leave Sweet Salon and get into a red sedan.

    When Legerton arrived to his business, there was glass littered the inside and outside of the hair salon.

    “I’m frustrated,” Legerton said. “But, they're just things," he continued. "I've owned my salon for 13 years.

    "Just this week, this happened twice. It happened on Thursday morning, and again last night. Both times [the suspect] stole my iMac."

    "[The suspect] must love those," he said. "[The suspect] could probably see it from outside."

    While NBC 7 was at the scene Monday morning, he spoke with people who gave him estimates on repairs.
