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.

Police are asking for the public’s help to find the suspect.
