Look, we all know Chucky’s little plastic body contains the soul of a sadistic serial killer… but this is just wrong on every level.

According to local news, police in Winston-Salem, North Carolina are hunting for a man who robbed a discount store last night while wearing a Chucky mask.

Winston-Salem authorities responded to a call around 10pm last night from the Northwest Discount store, whose employees reported the robber was wearing the mask with a black sweat suit, brandishing a handgun. Fortunately, no one was harmed, but the suspect fled the scene with cash and store merchandise.

As of this writing, the suspect has not yet been apprehended.

This certainly isn’t the first time a criminal donned a Halloween mask for a disguise, but the last reported case of a robber specifically wearing a Chucky mask was across the pond in North Lincolnshire, UK back in 2013.

That perpetrator was caught, and we hope this one will be soon – not only for their crimes, but also for dragging Chucky’s good name through the mud.
