Police were called to a home burglary in Clarksville where the alleged thieves wore well-known Halloween masks.

Officers in Clarksville said they were called to a home on Bel Air Boulevard after a witness saw a man in a “Scream” mask standing outside his window.  

The suspect’s alleged accomplice, wearing a “Jason-style” hockey mask, made his way into the home holding a pistol.

The resident was able to hide until police arrived at the scene. The suspect in the “Scream” mask was apprehended in the driveway. 

The other suspect managed to escape on foot, but left his Jason mask behind.

Officers found the suspect's car parked just down the road. The suspect’s name was not known.
