Robber Dons Halloween Mask -- 'Tis the Season
What appears to be the first Halloween mask-wearing violent robber of the Halloween season struck yesterday at Silver Avenue and Ledyard Street in Bayview.
A 40-year-old woman sitting on a park bench was attacked by a teenager outfitted in "a Halloween mask." A second teen then made off with her purse.
Our calls are in to the San Francisco Police Department to determine what manner of mask was being worn.
As Halloween costume shops crop up, so do instances of criminals in bizarre costumes. Tuesay's bizarre incident of a man outfitted as a Batman vampire knocking over a McDonald's in Belmont made national news.
