ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A man was robbed by men in clown masks in Roseville on Sunday.
Police say the victim was walking on Oakland and Fig streets when four men in a black sedan pulled up to him.
Three of those men, wearing matching clown masks, got out of the car, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded he empty his pockets.
The thieves then pistol-whipped him before taking off with his cellphone, shoes and hat.
The car is described as a black 1990s Honda Civic with a lot of body damage.
Police say so far they haven’t found any crimes in the region that match up with Sunday’s robbery, but so far it appears to be a singular incident.
