After the terrifying scary-clown phenomenon terrorised Northampton, it has now reached Norfolk.

 

Norfolk Police received a report from a member of the public alarmed by a clown sighting in Gaywood, near King's Lynn, on Tuesday evening.

 

The person responsible was described as wearing a "full clown outfit" with a red suit and red hair.

 

The following evening the force received a similar report after two clowns were spotted near a skate park in the town. These people wore "Halloween-type" clown masks.

 

In both cases, the callers reported being alarmed and being chased a short way up the road.

 

They told members of the public to ignore people dressed as clowns if they meet them in the street.

Superintendent Carl Edwards said no one had been injured or assaulted.

 

He added that it seemed whoever was behind the bizarre sightings was probably trying to shock people and it was best not to give them the attention.

 

Officers would patrol areas where the reports had been made and, if they found any clowns, they would "offer them strong words of advice", he said.

 

"Nobody has been assaulted and it appears that the people involved are waiting for a passer-by to be startled by their appearance and run away, and then the clown runs after them for a short distance.

Thats a dangerous prank to play. Some people react violently to clowns. Even good people like Seely Booth.

 

Unless its actually killer klowns, those bad boys can take care of themselves.

I agree, with big sticks and even bigger rocks. A few well aimed rocks would work miracles.

I ripped my deltoid in my chucking arm, however I hope it will be repaired soon.

 

Just been around the garden, got a 70 litre bucket with chuck-able stones now.

 

Bring it on CLOWN!

I hate clowns but my wife is terrified of them. I fear she would panic and really hurt any clown messing with her.
