Robber with Chilling Clown Masked Attacked Employee with Wooden Post and Scissors
On Saturday, at 11:50 p.m., Florida authorities responded to a shooting near the Little Caesars restaurant. According to the police, the caller told the emergency operator that he was attacked by an individual who was wearing a Halloween mask.
Heriberto Feliciano, 28, a Little Caesars employee, told the investigators that he was just about to close the restaurant when he saw a man approaching him.
The individual allegedly picked up a wooden post and struck Feliciano repeatedly. While the man was down on the ground, the assailant attempted to stab him with a pair of scissors.
Fortunately, Feliciano reached for his concealed weapon and shot his aggressor. According to the victim’s testimony, Feliciano shot the man with the clown mask four or five times at close range.
He then went to his car, placed the firearm on the trunk, and contacted the authorities. The surveillance footage, later made public, shows the individual circling the restaurant before picking out the wooden post and striking Feliciano.
According to the authorities, the video recording confirms that Feliciano was acting in self-defense when he shot the man with the clown mask.
However, Holly Hill police officers have yet to determine why the man attacked Feliciano that night. The unidentified assailant passed away at the hospital due to the injuries he sustained.
Based on the findings, it would appear that the assailant picked up the mask from a supermarket before heading to Little Caesars.
