Police warning after clowns spotted acting suspiciously in Northampton


The police are trying to track two teenagers who looked like they were dressed as clowns who have been spotted acting suspiciously in Northampton.

A woman who lives in Milton Street, Kingsley, called the police yesterday after two teenagers, who had so much paint on their faces she thought they night be clowns, knocked on her door and offered to paint her window sills.

The woman became suspicious of the pair, described as aged between 15 and 17 years old, as they had no painting equipment with them.

The teenagers are described as having faces which were covered with a large amount of white paint. They were also wearing dungarees.

A number of sightings of people dressed as clowns have also been reported across Northampton in recent weeks.

Pictures have been posted on Facebook showing a variety of people dressed as clowns in different locations in the town.

It is not known if the pictures posted on Facebook have anything to do with the two young men seen in Kingsley.
