Suspect in Clown Mask, Rainbow Wig Robs Again

For the second time in one week, San Diego police put out an alert to its officers: be on the lookout for a man with a clown mask and rainbow-colored wig. 

Officers were called to a convenience store at 6615 Linda Vista Road Wednesday after a man with a gun robbed the clerk.

The suspect’s description was the same as a previous robbery in Bay Park that occurred a week earlier.

The man, described as 5-foot 7-inches tall with a thin build, was wearing a clown mask and rainbow-colored wig when he walked into the store around 1:30 a.m.

Officers say the man fled in a dark-colored SUV traveling westbound on Northrim Court.

The 7-Eleven owner told NBC 7 she’s been at the location for about eight years and has seen the store robbed only once before.

She said the suspect got away with less than $100.
