The attack in Sweden comes as a wave of hysteria floods the world about creepy clown sightings and attacks.

In the centre of the Scandinavian country on Wednesday two people in clown costumes threatened to kill a woman.

“She was extremely frightened,” a police spokesperson told the Aftonbladet newspaper, adding that there was “nothing funny” about the spreading craze.

Recently students and teachers in a Dublin school were left terrified after a group of people dressed as clowns entered the grounds with what looked like a weapon.

Staff at Newpark School in Blackrock called gardaí when three members of a Halloween promotion company showed up with a prop that onlookers say looked "identical" to a chainsaw.
