Authorities in a North Carolina city recently pulled off a relatively rare feat when they managed to identify a young man who, they say, was behind a series of creepy clown sightings in the community. The mischief reportedly unfolded late last month when motorists in Roanoke Rapids called the police about a person clad in a clown costume who was running in and out of traffic and throwing things at passing cars. As is often the case, when officers responded to the scene, the mysterious stranger was nowhere to be found.
Although this initially appeared to be an isolated incident, things took an unsettling turn about 30 minutes later when a young boy walked up to a police officer conducting traffic and told him that a clown had just been staring into his window. Once again, cops investigated the matter, but were unable to locate the haunting harlequin who had terrorized the youngster. However, the case was far from cold as authorities zeroed in on a perceived 'person of interest' and somehow managed to recover the clown costume that caused all of the chaos in the first place.
