A woman was chased by ‘killer clown’ with a knife in North London last night


This morning a woman was chased down a road in North London by a man in a clown mask holding a knife.

It happened at around 2AM when she was walking near Whittington Hospital.

The woman was unharmed, but the “killer clown” has not been found.

A Met Police spokesman said: “Officers have established that the victim was walking along Marlborough Road where she saw a man wearing dark clothing and a clown mask on a bicycle.

“The man, who was also in possession of a knife, followed the victim before fleeing the scene in the direction of Hornsey Road.”

This is one of many “killer clown” sightings over the past few weeks, like ones reportedly chasing children in Durham or holding machetes in Manchester.
