The fear of clowns is called “coulrophobia” and it is a very real thing, especially in one South Carolina neighborhood. Residents of an apartment complex in Greenville, South Carolina are reporting the presence of clowns living in the woods near the complex and it’s freaking everyone out. There have been multiple clown sightings around the neighborhood and some witnesses claim they have been trying to lure children into the woods. One resident reported to police that she heard clowns in the woods “whispering and making strange noises.” She added that the clowns flashed green laser lights before running away. There are rumors that the clowns are living in a home by a nearby pond, but police investigated and found no signs of any clown activity. The reports have prompted the apartment complex property manager to issue a warning urging residents not to allow their kids to walk alone at night.
