EDITOR’S NOTE: This story is from 2013. Information reported here, while correct at the time, may now be out of date. 

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.
