Armed clown robs Walgreens in Brownstown Township
Man wearing clown mask armed with pistol
BROWNSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A person wearing a clown mask and armed with a pistol robbed a Walgreens Tuesday night in Brownstown Township.
The robbery happened at about 9:30 p.m. at the Walgreens on Telegraph Road, according to Brownstown police.
The clown entered the store and raised the gun up, robbing the clerk and fleeing in an SUV.
The clown was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a mask.
Police also say the clown pointed his gun at two customers on the way out, telling them to get back in their cars.
The armed robbery happened just hours after a boy in Sterling Heights was attacked by a man dressed as a clown and two women were frightened by an alley of clowns with baseball bats.
Over the weekend, a clown was spotted waving at cars in Clinton Township which had residents on edge.
