Fort Saskatchewan RCMP received two separate complaints of individuals dressed as clowns Wednesday evening.
RCMP said the two incidents occurred between 8:25 p.m. and 9:40 p.m.
A passerby reported the first clown sighting at the Spray Park – where a person dressed as a clown was “hanging out,” police said.
A youth took responsibility for the Spray Park clown, after he turned himself in accompanied by his mother Thursday afternoon.
A number of his classmates came forward to turn him in, after he told them that he had talked about dressing as a clown.
“At school he was excited about it,” a classmate told CTV Edmonton. “Like, completely psyched about it.”
The second clown sighting came from the passenger seat of a newer model black Ford F-150. The passenger was wearing a mask, stuck his or her head out of the window, and waved to the person who reported the incident before the truck sped up and cut in front of the vehicle. The license plate of the truck was not obtained.
Police said the mask was white with red hair, and the person was wearing dark clothing.
RCMP believe that what is now known as the “creepy clown” incident is coming from the United States, and they do not think this poses a threat to anyone.
“It is someone playing a joke and trying to be funny,” RCMP said in a press release.
However, RCMP want to speak to the person who was wearing the clown mask in the Ford truck.
