WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina are searching for a man who robbed a store while brandishing a handgun and wearing a “Chucky” mask inspired by a horror movie.

The Winston-Salem Police Department said in a news release that officers responded Sunday night around 10 p.m. to the Northwest Discount store.

Workers told officers the suspect entered the store, brandishing a handgun and demanding money. They say he was wearing a black sweat-suit and “Chucky” mask inspired by the “Child’s Play” horror movie series about an evil doll.

The suspect then fled with cash and merchandise.
