In incredibly creepy news, clowns have been stalking school kids in Kent.
Pupils have been told to ‘go straight home today after school’, after several pupils were terrorised by people wearing clown masks in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, Kent Police say.
And according to The Mirror some children have been chased home after school by people wearing clown and other Halloween masks.
Another young boy was approached by two men in a van on Wednesday morning, but he managed to run away and tell his school about the incident.
Local head teacher Elaine Buchanan sent a warning email to parents about some seperate incidents earlier this month, which saw several students being approached on separate occasions by two people wearing black outfits and white clown masks.
She wrote in her email:
Dear parents, It has been brought to our attention that some of our students have been approached in the vicinity on separate occasions (one outside Sainsbury’s and another outside Olive’s) by two people wearing black outfits with white clown masks. We have reported this to the police with whom we are actively working.Advertisement
We are advising students to go straight home after school today and not to loiter about anywhere.
A police spokesman told The Mirror:
The incidents started two weeks ago after several reports in Tonbridge. On October 5 in Hectorage Road, pupils reported they were scared by people in clown masks.
On October 7 and 8 there were also reports of a woman in the High Street wearing a clown mask.
The following week in Tunbridge Wells, on October 13 and 14 there are reports of people wearing clown masks in a van on St John’s Road.
At the moment it doesn’t appear anything sinister has been linked to these reports but we are continuing to investigate and trying to establish if any offences have been committed.
We are looking into it and putting out extra patrols to make sure people feel safe.Advertisement
So if you’re in the area, watch out. Unless you’re the person/people responsible, in which case stop being a cunt/cunts.
