Is this the masked fiend that’s taken the mantle of the Woodlands Clown in Doncaster? As you remember I mentioned yesterday, about a sighting just round the corner from us here, and it caused a real hoo-har I can tell you, pretty soon after all the upset, we have managed to get a still of the culprit from the cctv. (it’s the best still I could get, he was running fast so not in the frame for long)
This is a shot taken from the cctv footage of the escaping clown from last night. Alright, it’s not the clearest of images, but you can see that the person seen to run from the scene, wears a distinctive white clown mask. In the video footage (Which I will upload as soon as I convert the format over to a web uploadable one) he shoots off quickly from the scene.
From the looks, all the guy is wearing is a mask, no accompanying costume, and is seen dressed in a padded hooded jacket, and plain white trainers. In a strict sense we can only assume this event as a prank, given that they lacked the whole ensemble of matching clown gear. I would say this person probably is a teen (as they ran away really quick) and that they were between 5’6″ – 5’10 in height. I think that for people in the area of Woodlands, that they don’t have an actual creepy clown, rather a creep in a clown mask! At least if they are going to try doing the whole clown thing, to up their game somewhat, stop being a Tesco value jester, and put some proper effort into it, cheapskate!!
Seriously, wearing just a mask does not qualify as being a “proper” local scary clown! At least plenty of the other cut price pennywise’s go to the effort of actually dressing up for the part, any fool can stick a mask on and scare unsuspecting victims! Close but no cigar.
