Killer clown threat: Police probe reports of people jumping in front of cars in Belfast
Police are investigating reports of people jumping in front of cars in Belfast in relation to the so-called 'killer clown' craze.
It happened just before midnight in the Malone House area in the south of the city.
Police spoke to two people in relation to the incident and enquiries are ongoing.
The 'killer clown' craze has been sweeping the globe with people dressing up to scare members of the public.
Fancy dress shops have been asked not to sell clown costumes to anyone they think might be a prankster amid the ongoing "killer clown" craze.
In response, the PSNI has issued warnings on Facebook that while 'killer clown' costumes are not illegal, crimes could still be committed, such as common assault - any act which intentionally or recklessly causes another to fear immediate, unlawful violence.
