'"Killer Clown" Almost Sent My Little Girl Plunging Onto Rail Line'

'"Killer Clown" Almost Sent My Little Girl Plunging Onto Rail Line'

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 8:48am 10th October 2016.

A mum has told how someone dressed as a so-called "killer clown" almost sent her seven year old plunging onto a train line in Penzance.

The little girl was so scared after the masked man screamed in her face she came close to falling onto the track.

It is the latest in a string of reports of people putting on the masks and going out to scare people.

In separate incidents a four year old boy was left terrified in Torpoint, while a dog walker in Mabe reported two of the masked youths jumping out at her in the pitch dark.

Speaking about the latest sighting in Penzance the mum told Pirate FM it is impossible to tell whether it is a teenage prank or something more sinister: "It's awful - in today's day and age you don't know.

"I had my three year old nephew and seven year old daughter.

"My little girl ran when this ******* screamed in her face.

"She very nearly fell on the tracks.

"My two year old was hysterical - she has wet the bed every night. It's not funny.

"I phoned police.

"My mothers' instinct was to attack him. Something serious will happen - because I would've killed him. That's my kids."
