WTF. There have been a slew of disturbing clown sights throughout the Greenville, SC area and now they are starting to spread throughout the state. This news is seriously bringing back some childhood nightmares.
This past August, a series of reports were made to the Greenville Police Department that someone dressed as a clown had been sighted in wooded areas, as well as an apartment complex. In fact, the story of the creepy clown sightings initially made the internet crazy after a resident from the Fleetwood Manor Apartments posted a letter to Facebook that was reportedly distributed by the complex’s property management. The letter reads:
To The Residents of Fleetwood Manor:
There has [sic] been several conversation [sic] and a lot of complaints to the office regarding a clown or a person dressed in clown clothing taking children or trying to lure children in the woods. First and foremost at Fleetwood Manor Apartments childrens [sic] safety is a top priority. At no time should a child be alone at night, or walking in the roads or wooded areas at night. Also if a person or persons are seen you are to immediately call the police. Greenville County Police Department is aware of the situation and have been riding [sic] the property daily. Remember there is a 10pm curfew for the property so to ensure your childrens [sic] safety please keep them in the house during night hours and make sure at ALL times children are supervised. Anymore information that becomes regarding this issue will be sent out to all residents.
Although the Greenville Police Department has been unable to get their hands on any concrete evidence (ie. a picture or video) of the clown(s), deputies spoke with multiple children who said the clowns tried to “to persuade them into the woods further by displaying large amounts of money.”
Fox 8 News confirmed that the Spartanburg Police Department had officers called to Canaan Pointe Apartments this Wednesday night for reports of a suspicious person dressed as a clown, meaning the clown terror is spreading. Again, WTF. All of these scary clown sightings have us completely freaked out so whoever is doing this STOP. It’s not funny.
