Creepy clown terrifies Staten Island

Who is the mystery clown ? Image Credit: YouTube / Creepythings / Vic Dibitetto
A mysterious man dressed as a clown has been appearing on streets all over the New York borough.
In a strange echo of the creepy clown phenomenon that freaked out Northampton in the UK last September, people have been taking to social media sites to post photographs and sightings of another creepy clown figure that has been popping up all over New York's Staten Island.

With a devilish grin and a handful of balloons, the peculiar clown has been sighted standing on street corners and at the side of roads waving and staring at passers-by. It isn't clear whether the person in the costume is a copycat of the Northampton clown or if there's something else going on.

One popular theory at the moment is that the reports are a publicity stunt for Staten Island based film company "Fuzz on the Lens Productions" after several people associated with the firm posted an image of the clown on their social networking pages.

I would have a heart attack if I met this guy in an alley some dark night. He might be very nice and all, but he looks like a effin demon.

If I ever got to know one of those people, I would entertain myself by flipping magnets at them while they weren't looking.

I'm surprized the cops didn't pick up this guy for loitering and question him?
