A clown was spotted Monday in Cambria County, but not in the circus.

The creepy clown in a teal outfit was allegedly peeking in someone’s window in Barr Township, state police in Ebensburg said.

Troopers said they received a call at 9:48 p.m. from a woman in the 1200 block of Moss Creek Road who said a clown was peeking at her through the window. Troopers said the clown then ran toward the road and fled in an unknown direction.

More sinister reports of clowns have surfaced in several states. 

At least one person in South Carolina reported a clown trying to lure children into the woods.

According to the report, police in a South Carolina town have warned that anyone dressed as a clown could face arrest after stories surfaced of the mysterious figures frightening people. 

In another report from Maryland, four students, ages 7 to 9, said they saw clowns in parts of Annapolis while on their way to school. Annapolis police determined the stories were fabricated.
