Dartmouth Police release “Creepy Clown” PSA

DARTMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - Police in Dartmouth have released a video to highlight that officers are taking the recent clown threat seriously.

In the video, an officer responds to a report of a clown sighting in the woods. The officer finds the clown suspect and confronts him before pulling some clown antics of his own.

Though light-hearted, the video has a serious message – the department is taking the threats seriously and says that disturbing the peace, trespassing, and enticing of a child are arrestable offenses.

In the video, detective Kyle Costa concludes, “If you want to act like a clown, we have no problem treating you like one.”
