Clown Information: Fort Worth PD and North Richland Hills PD (and possibly other departments) are investigating reports of potentially dangerous person(s) dressed as clown(s). One call came in to FWPD by a person who heard screams, looked outside and saw a clown running along a sidewalk in a residential area near I35W and Western Center. We have received over a dozen messages from citizens reporting similar sightings. If you see a person dressed in a clown outfit and things look out of the ordinary, contact your local police department right away. Update - We have talked with NRH PD who indicates they have had no Police reports of clown sightings in their city. Several citizens have reported seeing one on Rufe Snow near the Pizza Hut which is Watauga PD jurisdiction (NRH Dispatch Center dispatches for NRH, Haltom City, Watauga, and Richland Hills). Fort Worth PD also indicates that no clowns were located when the officers responded to the call last night, and that no offense was believed to have taken place. It sounds as if most, if not all, of the clown sightings are from the public and the Police have not spotted any. We probably won't have any additional updates regarding this matter unless more of these clowns are spotted tonight and actually seen by the Police.
Folks, say a prayer for our fellow north Texans tonight who have been impacted by the tornadoes.
