Cops: Pint-sized perp robs Crown Heights beauty salon

Talk about a small-time crook.

Cops are hunting for the five-foot-three-inch-tall gunman who stole hundreds of dollars while robbing a Crown Heights beauty parlor at gunpoint on Jan. 4.

The diminutive delinquent waddled into the Nostrand Avenue salon near Park Place at 3:05 pm, locked the front door, then drew a gun and demanded loot from the six people inside, police said.

The pistol-packing pipsqueak nabbed $230 from his victims before forcing them into a back room that he locked them inside before making his escape, according to authorities.
