Clown causes alarm around Carroll University

Posted: Updated:

WAUKESHA (WKOW) -- There have been recent sightings of a man dressed up as a clown walking around Carroll University campus.  Students and neighbors have been told not to worry, but many people there would like the police to do something.

Our affiliate, WISN, talked to Becca Roraff.  Her boyfriend took a picture of the clown that has been shared on social media.  She says, "When I first saw it, I was kind of creeped out because it was just a random person on the street with a scary mask. I don't like clowns."

Waukesha police say they know who it is.  Waukesha police told WISN the teenage boy is "developmentally delayed and is just doing this to see people's reaction. Both he and his parents were advised several times it would really help us out if he wouldn't stand out there doing that."

Police say they aren't aware of any crimes the teen has committed, but they have received complaints, so they are still monitoring the situation.
