Town terrorised by freaky clown who "just stares at people
A terrified resident said: "He doesn"t juggle. He doesn"t twist balloons into animal shapes. He just stares."
One woman even reported the red-haired, white-faced clown had knocked on her front door and offered to paint her windowsills - despite having no equipment on him.
There has been no explanation for the sudden night-time appearances of the joker - who bears a striking resemblance to murderous Pennywise from the 1990 horror film It.
But someone claiming to be the mystery character behind the mask has set up a Facebook group detailing his exploits - with a picture of the feared jester at the top of the page.
He signs off each update with "beep beep" - the notorious Stephen King character"s catchphrase.
With the town in clown-inspired panic, some Northampton residents have threatened to ATTACK the silent joker next time he is seen.
But he pleaded: "I don"t terrorise people. I just want to be spotted."
He has been seem in locations across the town since he first appeared on Friday. (来源：新华国际)
