A word of consolation to Stephenville parents; The “Creepy Clown” pranks are happening everywhere.
Clown sightings have been spreading an unsettling fear across the U.S. and Monday night into early Tuesday, the Stephenville Police Department received six calls from the Tarleton campus and surrounding area of clown sightings and other suspicious activity.
Police said the calls were about someone in a creepy clown-type mask, or the hockey mask that was popularized by the Friday the 13th movies. An Instagram posting that said ‘Stephenville clown,’ appeared, but there was no threatening behavior. Officers did go to those locations and nobody was there.
No violent activity has as yet been linked to these pranks.
