( 4UMF NEWS ) Creepy Clown Attacks 14-Year-Old With Knife:
Either a creepy clown has broken from the pack — or there’s a brand new one.
A 14-year-old Columbus, Ohio boy on his way to school Tuesday morning was chased by a black-clad man wielding a knife and wearing a clown mask, NBC News reported.
The petrified boy was able to get away from the freak by hurling a rock at him and running to a bus stop, police said, noting that officers were canvassing the area Thursday afternoon.
The boy got to school and immediately reported the incident to his teachers but no arrests had been made as of Friday morning.
“We don’t know whether this was a prank or not, but we are taking it seriously,” Columbus police spokeswoman Denise Alex-Bouzounis said.
The freaky incident comes mere days after police were alerted of a mischievous band of clowns reportedly luring children into an abandoned house behind an apartment complex in Greenville, South Carolina.
No arrests have been made in that disturbing incident either.
A letter allegedly sent from the Greenville apartment complex’ property manager warned residents to keep a close eye on their kids.

“At no time should a child be alone at night, or walking in the roads or wooded areas at night,” the letter reads.
Alex-Bouzounis said Columbus police are aware of the reports of menacing clowns across the country but will focus on investigating the Tuesday’s incident locally.
