Knife-Wielding Clown Menaces Subway Riders, Chases Teen out of Station: NYPD

clownA creepy clown intimidated people on a subway in Manhattan on Wednesday before chasing a teenager out of a train station, police said.

The 16-year-old boy was getting off a subway train at the 96th Street station on Lexington Avenue around 4 p.m. when he encountered the man in a clown mask.

The clown was standing in the doorway of the train and preventing people from exiting, according to police.

Moments later, the clown started chasing the teen, who ran through a turnstile and up a flight of stairs. When he turned around, he saw the clown at the turnstile holding a kitchen knife, police said.

    BS. And in Ohio an 18 yr. old female told police she was accosted by a clown, but later it turned out she was late for work. Seemed like a good idea at the time. I want a clown mask.

    Minimum 10 years/no plea deals/no excuses-this has become threats Nationwide. I’d actually prefer 1 bullet to the head and a potters field burial.
    Sick of these aholes threatening everyone. Enough is enough. its criminal not funny. There are currently NO innocent clown actions, lock em up!

    It was an Ass-Clown! The proper way to handle that is two shots center mass and one shot to the head! Result is a DEAD Ass-CLOWN!

      Unfortunately it is NY City, so chances of having a concealed carry permit is slim to none. There is, however, no law against carrying a can of hairspray and a BIC lighter. Start setting a knife-wielding clown or 2 on fire and this crap will stop.

        Wasp spray will allow you to stop them without getting close. I do like your flamethrower, though. Personally, I’d just like to point my Glock at one just to see him pee his clown pants.
