Despite several people commenting about clown sightings in Brockton on social media overnight, police said they have not received any reports of people dressed up as clowns in the city. In recent weeks, there have reports of clown attack in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and SC. "We called the police and some of them patrolled the area". Some of those included threats of violence- and it looks like central IL could be the next to experience it.

"My real magic for young children doesn't work- unless they learn the real magic word. I put a lot of time and effort into this", he says. "They're just dressed up in costumes and we have nothing to do with any of them". Obviously this is a situation that local law enforcement authorities take quite seriously, and they should carefully and thoroughly review perceived threats to the safety of the community.

"It's very possible that it was our promotion", because it "caught on like wildfire", and attracted tens of thousands of likes on the Facebook page before it was revealed to be a stunt, he said.
