JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A local business received a strange phone call that has drawn the attention of law enforcement, according to Jonesboro police.

Officer David Stout went to Sports Clips, 3009 East Highland Dr., Sunday afternoon about the call.

Two employees at the business told police that the call came from a blocked number about 6 p.m. Saturday.

During the call, the man on the other line asked the employees which girls were working.

The man also asked if an employee was cutting the hair of a three or four-year-old child and if another employee was cutting the hair of a teenager, police said. 

The man on the phone also claimed he was the teenager's father, however, the teenager's father was inside the store when his child was getting a haircut, police said.

Police noted that one of the employees told them they get a strange phone call about once a month from a blocked number.

She said the caller usually gives specific employee names.

If you have any information that can help, call Crimestoppers anonymously at 935-7867. (STOP)
