More creepy clowns in Denmark

Ax and camera-weilding freaks frightening both young and old

Three young boys walking down a street in Skælskør, west Zealand were accosted by a man in a clown suit waving an ax over his head on Tuesday afternoon. The boys ran away and the clown gave chase, swinging the ax over his head, according to south Zealand and Lolland-Falster police.

The boys took refuge at the home of a woman police described as a ‘foreign lady’. She called authorities and went outside to chase the clown away.

“We arrived in the area shortly afterwards, but did not find the man,” Ole Hald, head of security in south Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police, told TV EAST.

Another clown frightened an elderly woman in Odsherred in northern Zealand on Tuesday. The woman was walking her dog on Tuesday evening when she saw a person wearing a clown costume a few metres away. The clown did not chase the woman. Instead, the costumed creep began to take pictures of the woman and managed to get eight to 10 shots before she could get away.

“It makes people very uncomfortable, because it creates so much fear,” said Lars Mogensen, head of security at Mid and West Zealand Police.
