A Town of Grant family got a bit of a scare on Nov. 14 when a creepy clown peered into the windows of their rural home.
Deputies were called by a 56-year-old woman from the 5000 block of 80th St. South — just east of the Wood Co. line — at 12:51 AM on Monday. The woman told deputies lights inside the home were on at the time, and the curtains had been drawn for the night.
Chief Deputy Dan Kontos said according to the responding deputy’s report, an 18-year-old woman in the home was in a downstairs room when she observed the man, wearing a clown mask, looking through the front window.
Kontos said the younger woman did not believe it was a prank conducted by one of her friends, as they all lived in urban areas.
Deputies searched the area but found nothing.
