CHICAGO — A robber wearing a clown mask and green clothes held up a South Loop store early Thursday.

At 1:48 a.m., an employee was alone in a store in the 1500 block of South Michigan Avenue when someone in a clown mask, green coat and green pants came in, police said. The person in the clown mask held a gun and said he or she was robbing the store.

The Tribune reports that the robbery occurred in a Dunkin Donuts location at 1575 S. Michigan Ave. 

The robber told the store employee to open the cash register, police said. He or she then grabbed the draw and all the money inside and ran out the store’s back door.

No one was injured. An investigation was ongoing.
