LEHIGH ACRES, FL -- It involved a clown but what happened at a Florida rib restaurant is no laughing matter. Sheriff's deputies say an armed man wearing a clown mask robbed a Lehigh Acres restaurant on Sunday night. It happened around 9:30 p.m. at the Rib City restaurant.
Employees say the restaurant was closed when an armed suspect entered through a back door that was unlocked. The man was wearing a Halloween costume that consisted of a clown mask and wig. He was also carrying a gun.
The four employees inside were forced into a back office at gunpoint. They were unable to open the safe so the suspect forced each employee to give him their valuables.
The robber then left the restaurant and is believed to have fled the crime scene in a vehicle that was waiting outside. The victims were unable to get a good description of the suspect because of the costume he was wearing.
He is only being described as a black male. Deputies say a description of the get away vehicle is also unavailable. No one was hurt during the robbery and the crime is still under investigation.
