Two local convenience stores were recently robbed by a masked bandit, and police wanted help finding him. Or her. It.

“I thought it was a joke, because, you know, I know a lot of people. So, I thought it was a joke,” the store clerk told News9.com. “So, I started laughing at him. I was like, ‘Man, stop playing with me and stuff.’”

The robber, wearing what appeared to be a skull mask, surprised the clerk after creeping around store displays. Then the robber started waving a gun. To that, the clerk laughed again.

“I was like, ‘Is that a fake gun? Because I think it’s fake,’” the clerk told News9.com. “And then when he pointed it at my eyes, I was like, ‘I don’t want to find out if it’s fake or not. That’s it!’”

Indeed, that was it, and he handed over cash. But the masked crusader wasn’t finished. Police think the two-faced suspect then donned a devil mask to rob another location. The second clerk didn’t get the joke, probably because the robber forced her to the floor before swiping the money. No joke.
