SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A suspect known as the ‘Evil Clown’ robber because of the scary mask he wore during robberies has been arrested, according to Sacramento police.
Detectives arrested 43-year-old Vanna Sisounthone in connection with three violent robberies in January.
In the first two robberies, police say Sisounthone shot at both store employees and a witness who was attempting to write down the license plate of the getaway car.
During the third robbery, the suspect’s ‘evil clown’ mask was ripped off by an elderly store clerk who fought with the suspect.
Sacramento Police say the techs at the Sacramento County Crime lab were instrumental in identifying the suspect.
