Police say a man wearing what they described as a “clown mask” (pictured above) attacked a pizza store clerk with a wooden club in Holly Hill, Florida Saturday night. When the club broke, the demon pulled out a pair of scissors . . .
The masked man, who police have not identified, hit (Heriberto) Feliciano on the face and shoulder with a wooden post until it broke, and then tried to stab him with scissors, police said.
That’s when Feliciano reached for a handgun he was carrying and shot the mask-wearing wacko “four to five times.” The unidentified demon was hospitalized, but later assumed room temperature.
Police Chief Steve Aldrich said there’s no indication that anyone beside the masked man was involved in the attack.
“I’m glad that he was able to defend himself and that he’s okay. It’s just unfortunate that this whole episode occurred,” he said.
Yes it is. But plenty of Americans work for a living in places that are statistically more prone to armed robbery. Liquor stores, gas stations, convenience stores and pizza parlors are such places that come to mind. Mr. Feliciano was aware enough to realize that and prepared himself accordingly. Something for which his family is no doubt very thankful.
