The Great Clown Panic of 2016 now stretches from sea to shining sea, as an incident occurred in Oregon.
[P]olice responded to a call of a "clown sighting" on Wednesday evening at 10:30 p.m. at a Redmond intersection.
"An employee working at Central Oregon Eyecare called dispatch to report she was leaving work when she saw a person wearing a clown mask with teeth, white t-shirt and blue pants," said Channel 21 in their report. "She became scared and wanted officers to escort her to her vehicle in the parking lot."
Take a deep breath. It gets worse. Police were unable to find the alleged terror clown.
