More Reports of Creepy Clowns Trying to Lure Kids Into the Woods
Communities in North and South Carolina are on edge following more reports of creepy clowns trying to lure children into the woods.
In recent weeks, there have been multiple incidents involving clown sightings at apartment complexes, parks and other areas of Greenville and Spartanburg counties in South Carolina.
On Sunday, two children in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, said they saw a clown who offered them treats like candy if they would come into the woods, WFMY reported.
According to the kids, the clown was wearing white overalls, white gloves and red shoes, and had red, bushy hair, a white face and a red nose.
A second sighting happened about two miles away later that same evening, and police received yet another call Tuesday morning.
Authorities in South Carolina have tallied at least six similar sightings since the first incident was reported on August 21.
So far, police in both states have turned up no evidence to substantiate the claims, but they are taking the reports seriously.
