Some children have believed they found a whole group of clowns living in a house at the end of a hiking trail, but when police went to investigate the place was empty. But distributors of an upcoming Rob Zombie movie about kidnapped carnival workers have denied any ties.

The message from police: Stop clowning around. "If it's a hoax or promotional stunt, we want the public to know that it's not amusing and it's a drain on police resources". On Tuesday, a witness in Greensboro, N.C. called police after they saw someone in a "scary clown mask, red curly wig, yellow dotted shirt, blue clown trousers, and clown shoes", leaving the woods, according to a Greensboro police statement.

A Greensboro man told WXII he was armed with a machete when he approached a clown Tuesday morning at his apartment complex. Make sure they know that it's okay to say no to an adult and to run away from adults in risky situations.

All three locations where clowns were reported are in very residential areas near parks, local ABC affiliate WTVD reported.

While it's not illegal to dress as a clown in Greensboro, Danielsen says the city has an ordinance that prohibits people from wearing a mask within city limits.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident or similar crimes is asked to call the Winston-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.

That's because Monfort, who performs under the name Mr. Twister, lives a half-hour from Greenville, South Carolina, where reports of menacing creeps in clown get-ups stalking the woods have unnerved local residents.

Armstrong called the police at 2:48 a.m. after alleging he chased the clown away.

Professional clowns aren't amused by the impersonators who are dressing up around the Triad. On the same day, a 45-year-old woman said that a middle-age man, wearing clownlike face makeup and red hair, "was standing outside the laundromat, and stared at her as she exited", the report said.

Kevin Thomas posted to Twitter: "Just spotted a major freak behind fleetwood apts".

"There has been a couple of people that have seen them". "Sadly, at the end of the day, if all of the bad people out there stuck out as much as a person dressed as a clown, we wouldn't have write posts like this". Police said in a statement they determined the report was false after conducting in-depth interviews with all witnesses and reviewing surveillance video during the time before, during and after the reported incident.

David Armstrong, 24, was charged with filing a false police report, police said.

Clowns have also been reported trying to lure children into the woods in Greenville, South Carolina. Some of those reports involved a clown allegedly trying to lure children into wooded areas by offering treats.
