A tanning salon in Ladera Ranch was robbed on Saturday night when a man walked in with a guitar case and pulled out a gun, reports KTLA.

The robbery took place at about 7:00 p.m. at At The Beach, The Tanning Superstore, located in a strip mall in the Orange County community. The suspect allegedly entered the store, opened the case and took out what officials believe may have been an assault rifle. He then made it clear that he intended to rob the store.

The suspect, who is still at large, is described as white, with brown hair and in his 20s or 30s.
