Knife-Wielding Clown Menaces Kids

Authorities in an English town are warning residents to be on the  lookout for a 'killer clown' after a pair of children reported  encountering the haunting harlequin late last week. According to a local  media report,  the kids told police that they were riding their bikes near a forest  known as Joyden's Wood on Friday evening when they were approached by an  individual dressed as a clown. Chillingly, the grease-painted miscreant  told the children to "run or die" and was thought to be wielding a  knife.

That suspicion is uncertain as, in what should be no surprise, the kids  quickly fled the scene before they could get a good look at the  ne'er-do-well's weapon. When the frightening youngsters returned home,  they reported their eerie run-in to the cops, who dispatched officers to  the scene. However, in keeping with the 'phantom clown' phenomenon, the  harlequin in question was nowhere to be found. Nonetheless, residents  were cautioned about the creepy incident and, presumably, asked to  report any similar suspicious activity to police.
