PAULINA, LA (WAFB) - There has been a current trend of creepy clowns appearing in random places across the nation and has some communities on edge.

On Monday afternoon, September 26, two individuals entered a Matherne's Supermarket in Paulina, located in St. James Parish, wearing Halloween masks.

According to police, the two individuals were not acting aggressively and left the store once the manager demanded they leave.

Reports of creepy clown sightings have appeared in several states including South Carolina, Mississippi, Virginia, Arizona, Illinois, and several others.

Out of all the numerous reported creepy clown sightings there has been no reported crimes associated with these appearances.

Yesterday, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, through its Twitter account, issued a warning urging citizens to stay on alert for people dressed in clown masks trying to lure children into the woods. They fear these individuals may be predators.

St. James Parish Sheriff's Office asks if anyone has any information on the two clowns in Paulina or may have observed similar incidents to contact their office immediately at 225-562-2200.
