On Friday, police admitted that they were looking to track two teenagers who were caught dressed as clowns, and had been caught acting in a peculiar fashion.
A woman alleged that the duo had knocked on her door in full clown attire before then offering to paint her window sills. However, they didn’t actually have the proper equipment to paint for her.
Various other sightings have since been reported across the town, however it’s not known whether the cases are linked. It would be frightening if they weren’t.
