Bibb County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call just before 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning in reference to some people dressed up as clowns, chasing kids at a school bus stop in the 4700 block of Elkan Avenue this morning with what they described as fake knives and flashlights. It was reported that the clowns appeared to be older kids or adults. It was reported that the subjects came from bushes and abandoned houses near Elkan Avenue and Dapleton Drive. It was also reported that some of the kids have been getting friends requests on Facebook from people dressed as clowns and messages saying “I will find you”.
This is the first report but the kids that were talked to this morning said this has been going on for the past few days in the “bottom side” of Bloomfield. No one was injured during the incident this morning. Deputies will be patrolling the area in the morning hours during the time kids are waiting on school buses.
The incident is under investigation by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
