There’s An Axe-Wielding Clown On The Loose, Possibly In Your City

WARNING: If you are afraid of clowns, axes or clowns carrying axes, you really shouldn’t read this story and since we’ve already put that warning in your head, you’re just going to have another nightmare anyway. So you might as well just keep reading. Police in North Carolina are looking for a man who dressed as a clown and tried to attack a woman with an axe.

This story that comes straight out of your nightmares originated in Hickory, North Carolina where an unidentified woman first reported the clown to the local police that sounds like a perfect storm for wetting your pants. She described the assailant as “an axe-wielding man in a clown mask and multicolored wig,” according to the local press. She says that the clown showed up at her house around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, which would be the optimal time for a demon clown to emerge from Hell and try to kill someone.

Fortunately, the clown did not harm or injure the woman. Instead, she was able to remove the clown’s mask and recognized her as an acquaintance before he fled the scene. She reported the incident to a local judge who later issued an arrest warrant for the man behind the clown mask. Police have not identified the man and have not arrested him as of Monday afternoon.

That means he’s still out there and we don’t know who he is. Sleep tight, kiddies.
