It’s early for Halloween, but a “Jason” mask from the “Friday the 13th” movie was put to sinister use early Thursday.

A gunman wearing a white hockey masked and two others robbed the Hop In just before 1 a.m. at 1104 W. Ga. 96, according to a blog post from the Warner Robins Police Department.

The three men, including the one in the goalie mask who pulled a gun on the clerk, demanded cash and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police posted three images of the robbers that shows the man in the Jason mask was wearing a royal blue cap and a dark jacket, or shirt that was possible navy blue.

Another man was wearing a bright yellow hooded jacket with the hood pulled closely around his face.

The third robber was only seen in a black and white photo where he appears to be wearing a dark, zippered jacket with the hood pulled tightly around his face, and dark pants.

No one was hurt in the robbery, but anyone with information is urged to call Detective Carder Gravitt at 478-302-5380 or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
