TCHULA, MS (WJTV)- Police in Tchula say a creepy clown was spotted in a neighborhood Thursday night.
Chief Kenneth Hampton said he saw a person dressed up like a clown in the Gwen subdivision. He said the person had a colorful wig and was holding a machete.
There have been recent reports across the country about clown sightings and clowns allegedly trying to lure kids into woods.
Hampton thinks this could be a kid playing a joke, but hopes they stop before someone gets hurt.
“Let’s just say there is a lot of boots in Tchula and he could be on the receiving end of several of them,” said Hampton.
Hampton has not launched an investigation. He is waiting for more details before moving forward. We will keep you updated.
