( 4UMF NEWS ) Creepy Clown Sightings Spread To NY, NJ:
They’re finally here. After weeks of creepy clown sightings across the country, the freaky phenomenon appears to finally have made it to the Empire State.
At least two people filed police reports after spotting a clown lurking around Clifton Park, a suburban town outside Albany, ABC 10 reported.
A woman who only identified herself as Alyssa told the local TV-station she saw a “creepy clown” outside the laundry room of her apartment complex early Tuesday.
“It was just really creepy. Like he was just standing there in the middle of the street and so I was freaked out because of everything that was happening in the south,” she said. “I feel like somebody is going to end up getting hurt. I just don’t think it’s necessary. I don’t think it’s funny.”
Another person at the same apartment complex said she also spotted the clown and snapped a picture, which she turned over to police.
Local cops said no crimes appeared to have been committed as of Wednesday, but officers are monitoring the reported areas closely.
“It would be a good idea to talk to your children about stranger danger,” Clifton Park Lt. Dan Morley said.
Meanwhile, police in New Jersey have received at least four reports of creepy clowns lurking around Phillipsburg since Sunday.
Three clowns reportedly emerged from the woods and chased a young boy Sunday evening, according to NJ.com. But when cops showed up, the mysterious clowns were nowhere to be seen.
The next day, a sicko wielding some sort of sword allegedly chased a child. Later that evening, a dark-colored truck was spotted driving down a Phillipsburg street with multiple clowns hanging out the windows.
“If somebody is running around with a sword, we have more of an issue,” Phillipsburg police Capt. Robert Stettner said.
The New York and New Jersey sightings come after weeks of similar incidents have been reported in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
