No laughing matter: Winston-Salem police say someone in a clown costume tried to lure kids into the woods twice on Sunday night.
The first reporting was 8:30pm Sunday night in the 1200 block of East 29th Street off Hwy. 52, then just after midnight in the 1600 block of Hope Lane, two miles from the first sighting. *The “clown” was described as wearing white overalls, white gloves, red shoes with red bushy hair, a white face and a red nose. There have been similar clown sightings in South Carolina.
