Killer Clown Trend Is Back Again!September 23, 2018
It was in Dartford, Kent where two boys have told police they were chased by a man dressed as clown who shouted ‘run or die’, while ‘holding a knife’.
The boys said they were out cycling in Joyden’s Wood, when they came across the man who began shouting ‘run or die’, while holding something that ‘looked like a knife’.
As soon as the pair returned home and told their parents, the cops were called and a police car was sent to the area to see if the man could be found.
A spokesperson from Kent Police told The Mirror “We were called at 6.46pm on September 14 to a report of a person dressed as a clown in Tile Kiln Lane.
“Patrols in the area were advised of the incident but no person matching the description was seen.”
The incident and previous trend has sparked fears there could be a repeat of the bizarre clown trend that hit the UK back in 2016 and then again last autumn.
A number of reports of clowns, often carrying knives or other weapons, were reported back in 2016, prompting police in Manchester to release a statement warning people what to do if they should see one.
Assistant Chief Constable Catherine Hankinson of Greater Manchester Police told The Sun Online: “It’s important to stress that no-one has been physically harmed and I want to reassure people that we take reports of this nature extremely seriously.
“But if you do see any individuals dressed as clowns, you should try and keep calm and report the incident to authorities.”
One man was arrested and slapped with a £90 fine after he was caught dressing up in a black and white clown costume and jumping out and scaring kids. When will it stop?
