EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn — Police are searching for two men who allegedly tried to rob a barber shop in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn on Friday.
The pair entered the Nostrand Legends Barbershop about 8 p.m. Friday, police said. One of them pulled out a gun and demanded money, and the second man, who was unarmed, tried to take a gold chain and money from one of the employees, who refused to hand anything over.
