Knife-wielding clown spotted in Almere; Dutch police issue warning

Police in Almere received several reports about a so-called "killer clown" in the city over the past days. This clown is armed with a knife. According to the reports, he chases and scares children.

The police are taking the reports very seriously and the Almere police issued a warning. Anyone who spots the clowns should contact the police at once.

These killer clowns have been a trend in the United States for some time. They've also been spotted in Australia, New Zealand and France, according to the Telegraaf.

The intent of these clowns seem to be to scare, not actually attack.
