Claiming it was a "Nightmare on Third Avenue" would make the situation relatively funny, however Chula Vista police aren't joking about finding the suspects who robbed an insurance agency of a Freddy Krueger prop Wednesday night.
The mechanical prop was taken from an Insurance 4 Less located on Third Avenue near Sea Vale Street, said Chula Vista police Lt. Scott Arsenault.
At least two youths were seen fleeing from the scene in a dark-colored Cheverolet Suburan, Arsenault said.
The burn-scarred head of prop fell off as it was being hustled into the car, Arsenault added.
An employee on duty Saturday declined to give any comment on the incident.
