Police: Possible Clown Sighting in Lexington

The latest report comes from the town of Lexington.

Lexington, SC (WLTX) - Officers at the Lexington Police department are investigating claims that a man in a clown suit and another person in a bear suit were spotted in an apartment complex there.

Around 6 p.m. Monday, officers were called to the Park North Apartments on Brookhill West.

A group of juveniles said the driver of a car was dressed in a clown costume and the passenger was in a bear suit. One of the kids said the clown got out of the car and tried to speak with them. The other said the clown never got out of the car or spoke to the kids. 

The vehicle was described as a gold or silver SUV with no license plates.

Though there were inconsistencies in the report, police say they are taking it seriously, and will fully investigate the claims. Officers have increased patrols in the area and will be present during bus pickup and drop off times at the apartment complex.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
