At the edge of dark, dark woods in South Carolina, children have been telling adults that a group of clowns have been trying to lure them into the cluster of trees. They say the clowns live deep in the woods, near a house by a pond.
Several children said that clowns were offering them money to follow them into the woods, close to the house by the pond. (The police say they have found no evidence of clown paraphernalia at the house.)
Clown tries to lure kids in Winston-Salem, two clown sightings reported
Winston-Salem police say someone in a clown costume tried to lure kids into the woods Sunday night.
A 14-year-old Columbus, Ohio boy on his way to school Tuesday morning was chased by a black-clad man wielding a knife and wearing a clown mask.
The petrified boy was able to get away from the freak by hurling a rock at him and running to a bus stop, police said, noting that officers were canvassing the area Thursday afternoon.
The boy got to school and immediately reported the incident to his teachers but no arrests had been made as of Friday morning.
