CHARLOTTE, Mich. — A frightening morning for employees at a spa.

Eaton County deputies are looking for the man responsible for robbing the business in Charlotte. Police were called there around 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

FOX 47 sat down with an employee who says it's not the first time the business has been robbed, but they hope it is the last.

"Then my employee called me...they call about a robbery coming in, and I said what? And I came so fast here. There's already large police here," she said.

This Hawaii Health Spa employee says there were police cars everywhere and asked her coworker what had happened. She says the robber came through the kitchen with a gun.

"The kitchen...give me money, 30 seconds if you don't give me money...I'm going to kill you.," she said.

The employee, who wanted to remain anonymous, says that she felt like something like this was going to happen, and warned people who work there because she saw it in a dream recently. But that doesn't take away the shock value of the incident.

"I'm shocked. I said what? Because usually, believe it or not, I don't know. Usually, something goes on here before....I dream it. Always a dream."

Regardless of the missing money, workers there are just happy no one was hurt.

"it's good, nobody hurting. That's why I'm happy. Money's gone, but that's OK. No hurting people," she said.

If you have any information, contact the Eaton County Sheriff's Officer at (517) 372-8217.
