The clown craze is reportedly ‘returning’ as horrified teens are making ‘stalking’ claims.
According to reports, police were called to Hampton Pier in Herne Bay, Kent, on August 22 at 10:10pm after a teenager and his friends claimed they were followed by a clown who eventually crouched behind a wall and out of sight.
Addressing the alleged incident on Facebook, the mum of the 17-year-old teen reportedly wrote: “My 17-year-old son has just come home with his friend and they have both been followed along Hampton Pier to just past the park by someone dressed in a full clown outfit.

“They were acting strangely, walking fast behind them, hiding and crouching behind the sea wall [and] acting creepily like they were acting out a killer clown.”
She continued her claims, adding: “My son and his friend hid for a couple of minutes and this clown was stood by the park along the sea wall swaying side to side. They ran home.
“They tried to video it but it was too dark.”
A force spokesperson told the Daily Star: “The person did not attempt to speak to the boys and no offences have been identified.
“A local patrol carried out a search of the area but no one matching the description was located.”
Reportedly, the clown wasn’t carrying any kind of ‘weapon’.
In some cases, they would jump out at a passerby and chase people down the street.
