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.
