Police will be monitoring a north Columbus bus stop this morning after one student said a person in a clown mask chased him with a knife.
The 14-year-old boy was headed to the bus stop Tuesday morning near Sandalwood Place on his way to school at Columbus North International School. He said around 6:15 a.m., a guy in a clown mask, dressed in all black, chased him with a knife.
Moms in that neighborhood said they’re reminding their kids to pay attention and follow their gut.
“I thought it was crazy!” said mom of two Tombi Williams, who lives in the neighborhood where it happened.
Recently, there have been reports of clowns luring children in South Carolina. Williams couldn’t believe this time it was in her backyard.
“I did not think it was here, but it goes to show things crazy and stupid can happen everywhere.”
Mom of four Tasha Jones worries about her teenagers not paying attention.
“(I’m) very concerned because one of them plays Pokemon a lot on his phone, so I told him ‘you have to be more aware now,'” she said.
