NOT FUNNY: Three Robbed, One Pistol-Whipped By Gunman In Clown Mask

The Northalsted Business Alliance announced that its 2013 Halloween Parade theme will be "Twisted Circus," and local thugs are already in the spirit.

Three offenders, one in a clown mask and two others possibly in ski masks, robbed three victims at gunpoint in a single incident outside of 3125 N. Clifton this morning.

Two men and one woman were robbed and one of the male victims was pistol-whipped in the attack, according to police reports.

911 was first alerted to the incident when a victim called from the 7-Eleven store at 1153 W. Belmont, at 2:45 this morning.

That victim, originally described as "uncooperative," changed their tune and decided to work with officers.

Three phones, a watch, wallets, and a passport were taken in the robbery, which was carried out by offenders with the following descriptions:
#1-male, black, wearing a clown mask and black hoodie
#2-male, black, gray hoodie
#3-male, black
