ARLINGTON, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Police say they've arrested a man who robbed a hair salon at knifepoint in Arlington Saturday afternoon.

The robbery occurred at Ripples Hair Salon at 209 Broadway St., when a man came into the salon and held a woman at knifepoint, demanding that she hand over all the money in the cash drawer, more than $400.

An Arlington police officer on patrol Sunday morning noticed a man that matched the description of the robber that the victim had given police. He detained the man, while the victim came to the scene and identified 36-year-old Sean R. Harding of Arlington as the man who allegedly robbed her.

Police arrested Harding for armed robbery, and he is being held on $5,000 cash bail in Arlington police headquarters until Monday morning, when he will be arraigned in Cambridge District court.
