    The key word thus far is the verb "claim."

    Once upon a time kids were afraid of the bogey man, no idea what he was supposed to look like, but as a kid i was terrified to encounter "him" in the woods.
    Are clowns the new bogey men/women?
    People are into so much role-playing type games these days, maybe someone is organizing" scare the kids events"?

    I think that is just too creepy, I read that in the news last evening, freaked me out.

    I've had a fear of clowns since the movie Poltergeist movie and then on American Horror Story, brought it all back.

    If I seen that clown, I would run even as a child....shiver

    I recall a similar incident when I was in grade school. One day a rumor began circulating in school that someone had seen a "monkey man" in the woods at the edge of the school playground. He was alleged to look like a monkey (maybe an earlier version of Sasquatch?). As the day went on, more details circulated: he had long fingernails, he tried to snatch a girl and scratched her arm, etc. I don't remember all the details, but by afternoon recess, some kids were in tears on the playground. By the end of the day, it was nearly mass hysteria. The principal had the school janitors go down into the woods to check things out, but they found nothing. Everyone went home terrified, parents were worried, but not about the "monkey man", just about their kids getting worked up over nothing.

    ETA: For reference, this happened around 1964. My grandmother used to say back in her childhood, kids got worked up over seeing Indians (Native Americans) in the woods.
    All statements are my opinion only.

    Pedophiles rarely work in tandem as far as I know. As soon as I heard clowns (plural), I doubted this story.
