Creepy clown freaks out Northampton

A mysterious man in full clown make-up has been spotted several times standing outside people's houses.
Local newspapers have picked up on the story which has been gaining momentum thanks to a spate of sightings, photographs and Tweets. People across Northampton, a town north of London, have reported seeing the creepy clown since his first appearance on Friday 13th.

Decked out in full costume, face paint and a red wig, the mystery individual has been photographed standing on street corners and outside people's homes.

In one case he was said to have knocked on a woman's door and offered to paint her window sills despite having no painting and decorating materials.


"He doesn't juggle. He doesn't twist balloons into animal shapes. He just stares," said one witness.

Others have expressed fear and concern about the clown's intentions. Local police have stated that they are currently trying to track down two teenagers in connection with the reports.

A Facebook page entitled "Spot Northampton's Clown" that was set up in response to the sightings has so far received over 19,000 likes.

That was my thought. ......i just dont know anymore though, I feel like Juggalos would get involved, and I'd rather be affiliated with the aryan brotherhood before those idiots

Are Juggalo's common? Seen them in TV shows but couldn't imagine people actually going out dressing like that.

It would be really creepy if this did happen all over the world. It would gain all sorts of crazy explanations. there needs to be like a "clown movement" Just bunches of people dressed up as clowns standing on street corners being creepy. Instead of a starbucks there should be a clown on every corner.

The reason this guy was given so much attention is because he made himself look menacing . People don't like menacing looking figures disguised to hide their identities in this day and age. The last guy to dress as a "clown" that wasn't a clown by career choice in the US was in Colorado that shot and killed dozens of people in a mall and theater. Would have been different if he was passing out balloons or something but he admits to trying to scare people. For that, I'd like to give him a swift kick in the ass with his own size 20 shoe.

If my boyfriend seen him in the street he'd have a heart attack. He is terrified of clowns haha! He told me the other day that he read somewhere that you can hire a clown to stalk your child the week before their birthday and then the clown will show up at their birthday party and hit them in the face with a pie. I didn't believe him until I read it for myself. I've added the link below. Parents who do this to their children are cruel lol http://metro.co.uk/2010/04/13/evil-clown-dominic-deville-hired-for-stalking-threats-and-a-pie-in-the-face-237663/
