Frightening ‘killer’ clowns could be out and about tonight, as darkness falls on the county.
The craze originated from America in 2016, but quickly began in the UK days later. The horror clowns are usually brandishing a weapon and will often chase unsuspecting victims.
Police in Wiltshire say that they will “fully investigate” any reports of so-called killer clowns who cause fear and anxiety to people, which could be classed as a public order offence.
Back in 2016, a Wiltshire Police spokesperson said: “We would like to remind people intent on engaging in this type of behaviour that your actions can cause fear and anxiety to people which could lead to public order offences being committed. In turn, this could lead to a criminal record.”
They reminded the public to think twice about dressing as a ‘killer clown’.
“Please think about your actions carefully. Any reports of offences committed will be fully investigated”, the force added.
