A California man dressed as the creepy clown from the movie “It” was arrested after a calamitous crime spree.

Dressed in a spooky Pennywise clown mask, Joel Alfredo Hernandez was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting one woman, 50, and robbing a 54-year-old of $500 in cash, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The 22-year donned the mask and a red sweatshirt when he is said to have robbed one woman at an ATM machine in Victorville, Calif.

Deputies quickly detained Hernandez, but further investigation showed he allegedly also sexually assaulted and groped another woman at a the El Super Market minutes before the robbery. 

The assault victim identified Hernandez as her alleged assailant.

Police recovered evidence of the robbery, including the $500 cash that was inside Hernandez’s backpack.

Adding a twist to the tale, his mugshot revealed Hernandez had a diamond tattoo over his right eyelid and cheek — a decoration usually applied by clowns as part of their makeup.

The 22-year old was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for robbery and sexual battery. His bail was set at $200,000.
