A clown is terrorizing a town in England. This clown is standing on street corners holding balloons, or sometimes he is just standing there doing nothing. Once in a while, this clown is seen holding a teddy bear, according to The Inquisitr on Sept. 18.
Now to the terrorizing part, what do you think this clown is doing to cause such a fright in Northampton? Nothing, but people are finding him really creepy and some are actually really afraid of this guy lurking around dressed like a clown. Then there are the folks who have a real phobia to clowns and this really scary looking character is putting a fright into those people.
Because the clown is causing such a panic, a self-named “clown catcher” is hot on this clown’s trail. Boris the Clown Catcher, has his own Facebook page and he is on a mission. Boris writes:
“My name is Boris. I am the official clown catcher. I am not here to scare anyone. I am not here to hurt anyone. I come in peace!”
This is a very serious matter to the folks who suffer a fear of clowns and it seems that the town of Northampton has more than their fair share of clown phobias. Will Boris the Clown Catcher be able to catch this clown?
According to Fox News, this clown isn’t so innocent looking. He showed up on Friday the 13th and he’s been spotted all over town since. Fox describes the clown as “creepy.” They also say:
“A spooky clown, dressed in white face paint with huge drawn-on eyebrows, a curly red wig and a ruffled collar -- and looking exactly like Pennywise clown from the Stephen King-inspired 1990 horror film, "IT."’
What the clown is up to and who this clown really is, it is not known. Folks have taken to Facebook in that town reporting all of this clown’s sightings. This does sound like a Stephen King novel!
