FORT SMITH (KFSM) – A Fort Smith man was hospitalized after an intruder in an Insane Clown Posse mask broke into his home and beat him with a baseball bat, according to a police incident report.
The victim told police he was in bed at his home Sunday night on Jenny Lind Road when he heard the front door shut. When he went to investigate, he came face-to-face with a man wearing dark pants, an Under Armor shirt, dark gloves and an Insane Clown Posse Mask, according to the report.

Police said the suspect began beating the victim with an aluminum baseball bat while the victim yelled, “Why are you doing this!?” and, “What did I do wrong!?”
The victim said he moved into the home about five weeks ago.
Insane Clown Posse are a Detroit-based music duo whose fans have recently been categorized by the FBI as a gang.
The Insane Clown Posse-masked intruder struck the victim on the back of the head and said, “Consider this a warning,” before leaving the home.
The victim said he called his father, who took him to Mercy Medical Center in Fort Smith. He had minor injuries to his chin, face, head and elbow, police said.
Police said the victim believes the suspect had a key because there is no sign of a forced entry into the home. The victim said his girlfriend is the only person he knows of who has a key to his place.
