ARMED CLOWN ROBBERY REPORTED AT WALGREENS IN BROWNSTOWN TWP. MIXED OPNS FROM PWP YPSI READERS REGARDING CREEPY CLOWNS.
Okay, this clown schtick is getting out of hand. On Monday I wrote an article addressing the creepiness of the recent sightings of this creepy clown issue. In the PWP article I also reported on Muskegon public schools going into soft lockdown after a threat was made on social media by a creepy clown. Well, local news station Local 4 Detroit has just reported that a clown armed with a pistol robbed a Walgreens in Brownstown TWP Tuesday night around 9;30 pm. According to clickondetroit local 4 News the armed clown robbery took place at a Walgreens located on Telegraph Road.
According Local 4 News the clown walked into the store with a gun and robbed the clerk. The clown then fled the scene in an SUV.
Here in Ypsilanti Purple Walrus Press has received mixed feedback regarding this recent issue with creepy clowns. While several readers have expressed anger and agitation toward this clown craze, others have seen it nothing more than silliness. I will say that readers who haven't taken the creepy clown shenanigans particularly seriously commented before more recent reports of violent and aberrant behavior by clowns.
Brownstown TWP is located 26 miles from Ypsilanti. Gee, what would Bozo the clown say?
