Throughout the past month there have been reports across the nation of people dressed in clown costumes terrorizing others.

A clown was spotted at the Kirkwood Village East Apartments on the evening of Oct. 3. Photos and videos of this incident were shared through social media and Campus Security was called to the scene.

Many Kirkwood Community College students have grown concerned about the clown incidents as well but are hoping for the best. “I was already scared of clowns in general, so I wish this wasn’t happening but I feel it’s just a fad that’ll die down,” said April Korsmo, Liberal Arts.

Other students are less disturbed by the recent clown incidents, even hoping to catch a glimpse of one. “I kind of want to see one,” said Donisa Zeneli, who is currently working toward her Associates of Science degree.

There are many social media pages containing videos and photos of these clown sightings in nearly every state across the United States. Most recently these pages have depicted clowns following citizens in their vehicles. While many of these sightings have been brushed off as pranks, some have become more serious resulting in injuries and arrests.
