A mysterious and “creepy” clown has been spotted walking around at night by terrified people living in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A Facebook page was set up to share photos and experiences of the nightmarish figure and has dubbed the clown as “Gags” the Green Bay clown.
The first sighting was reported on August 1 at 2am, a local station WBAY reported.
Photos shared on Facebook depict a figure straight out of horror films, dressed in a ragged jumpsuit, over-sized clown shoes and a dirty ruff collar around the neck.
The person in the terrifying costume also wears ghostly black and white makeup and carries several black balloons in their hand.
One person claimed the clown is part of a horror film being shot in the area but it has not been confirmed.
There have been multiple sightings of horrifying clowns around the world in recent years, including in California, New York City, England, France, and Australia.
Last November, students at a university in Wisconsin reported seeing a strange clown in an orange outfit on campus.
Local police later identified the person behind the disturbing prank as a developmentally delayed teenager who was dressing up and staring at passers-by on Main Street to get a reaction out of people.
