The manager of South Carolina’s Fleetwood Manor Apartment Complex is now warning residents to be on the look out for a clown that has been terrorizing local school children, reports Greenville’s WYFF.
There was recently a letter sent by the management to all the residents of the apartment complex stating that there have been “a lot of complaints” about “a clown or a person dressed in clown clothing … trying to lure children in the woods.”
Local Greenville resident Kevin Thoman tweeted this rather disturbing image earlier today – he claims it was taken behind the Fleetwood Manor Apartments:

In an Aug. 21 report to Greenville County deputies, a woman said her son had seen “clowns in the woods” around 8:30 p.m. An investigating deputy then spoke with another person who said a clown was also seen near a garbage dumpster.
The person said the clown waved at her and she waved back, but the clown did not approach.
There have been several claims from local school children that several clowns had been seen in the woods trying to get them to follow him with various amounts of money.
Witnesses told investigators that they believed the clowns lived in a nearby home, or might possibly be a resident of the Fleetwood Manor Apartment complex.
