Freddy Kruger: Armed Robber.

I guess the movie/nightmare business is in bad shape when Freddy drops the claws and totes a gun.

The man, wearing a rubber mask that looked like the dream-haunting villain from the “Nightmare On Elm Street” movies and carrying a gun, forced an employee to open the cash register, according to investigators.

Police said the masked gunman stole some cash and escaped, possibly in a burgundy Ford Explorer.

At least he is not using a Government Motors vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477) or visit
