Police have warned that pranksters who are posing as ‘killer clowns’ to terrify people could face arrest.
The warning comes after a female reader, who has asked The Extra to respect her anonymity, was accosted by someone dressed in a clown costume as she was taking a short cut through Queen’s Park in Langside.
She told The Extra: “I had just entered the park when I heard something. As I turned around there was someone dressed as a clown standing beside a tree. The ‘clown’ started to walk towards me and I screamed. As I did, the person ran off.
“I’d never heard of this ‘killer clown’ thing and thought it was someone going to a party - but it wasn’t funny.
