    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Winston-Salem police say someone in a clown costume tried to lure kids into the woods Sunday night.

    The incident happened in the 1200 block of East 29th Street off Hwy. 52 about 8:30 p.m.

    The "clown" was described as wearing white overalls, white gloves, red shoes with red bushy hair, a white face and a red nose.

    The suspect allegedly tried to lure the kids with treats. The suspect was reportedly seen by two children and heard, but not seen, by one adult. The suspect fled the area when officers arrived.

    Hope Lane - site of second clown sighting

    A second clown sighting happened just after midnight in the 1600 block of Hope Lane, two miles from the first sighting. Officers attempted to locate the subject but were unsuccessful.

    Both spots where clowns were reported are in very residential areas near parks/woods.

    Similar incidents have occurred in South Carolina.

    Maybe our Carolina Monkeys can corral this Dufus....

    Almost as creepy as politicians making promises. (Politicians are the evil offspring of demonic circus clowns)

    It makes me coulrophobic, just thinking about it. Between Steven King's It, and Macdonalds' Ronald McDonald, oh and John Wayne Gacey...clowns don't enjoy much in the way of appealing characters.....:eek:

    Red Skelton used to do a few clown acts . Sure does seem like those were a lot better , more simpler times in those days . It's getting to be a very sick world we live in now a days .
