Creepy Clowns Close in on Broome County
New York State Police in Kirkwood report that the creepy clown sightings have moved into Broome County.
Clowns were reported acting suspiciously overnight October 2-3 in Colesville and Windsor. Troopers responding to the scene found no one.
The harassments are said to be inspired by a gruesome Rob Zombie movie called “31” featuring torture and murder at the hands of people dressed as clowns.
Sighting have been reported around the country since August with people dressed as clowns trying to lure children with candy or money and, in some cases, assaulting children.
Just last week, a Syracuse boy reported being chased by three clowns on his way to school. The boy was okay and police were unable to locate the three suspects.
