My carnival robbed at gunpoint

Three men dressed in black ‘hoodies’ robbed the Butler Amusements carnival in Bay Point, Ca. last night at gunpoint about 10 pm., according to eyewitness accounts.

The three gunmen approached the carnival’s supervisor in his trailer, pointed guns and demanded money.

Unconfirmed sources said they took “several thousand dollars.” The robbery occurred as the four-day carnival along Willow Pass Road, near the corner of Bailey Road, was closing Sunday night. The supervisor was collecting the night’s receipts, according to the sources, when the robbery occurred.

Nobody was injured in the robbery, according to unconfirmed reports.

The Fairfield, Ca.-based traveling carnival operates yearly at this time in Bay Point, in the metropolitan San Francisco area. It featured 11 rides.
