Winston-Salem police increase patrols after clown sightings

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Police say they are doing extra patrols in a Winston-Salem neighborhood after two children reported seeing a clown trying to lure kids into the woods with treats.

Police said in a news release that officers were called to the area around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities say two children said they saw the clown, and one adult reported hearing the clown.

Officers say they found no evidence of a clown in the woods.

About four hours later, a caller who refused to give a name reported seeing a clown about 2 miles away. Police say again they found no evidence of a clown.

Several unverified clown sightings in northern South Carolina have been in the news recently.
