MENASHA, Wis. (WPIX) -- A creepy clown and his female accomplice face child neglect charges after leaving their 4-year-old at home so they could terrorize a Wisconsin neighborhood, police said.

City of Menasha officers responded in the early morning hours of Friday, October 7th to 911 calls reporting people in clown masks chasing after vehicles.

Dashcam video shows the officer confronting two men, ages 20 and 29, who were allegedly involved in the incident. Police say they also found the clowns' driver, a 26-year-old woman, in a vehicle parked nearby.

While no one was charged for the clown costumes, police did arrest the 29-year-old man and 26-year-old woman after discovering that the couple had allegedly left their 4-year-old child home alone for hours during the clown prank.

The child was placed by the Department of Human Services outside of the home. The parents have been referred to court on charges of child neglect. The woman was also held in the Winnebago County Jail on a probation hold.

The 20-year-old man was not charged in the incident.
