Police in Concord, California, said Wednesday that a man in a clown costume attempted to kidnap a baby girl.

It happened Wednesday afternoon at a bus stop where a mother was standing and holding her one-year-old daughter. 

According to KTVU-TV, the man was dressed in a blue wig and clown suit and after a brief conversation, suddenly tried to snatch the child from her mother's arms.

Police said the woman was able to kick the clown and run away. Police could not locate a suspect. 

As the "creepy clown" social media trend has spread in recent months, several area schools have been subjected to hoax threats, the station reported.
