Man armed with a machete chases clown spotted near the woods

Greensboro Police on Tuesday morning received a call about another clown sighting in North Carolina.

A witness told police that a person wearing a scary clown mask, red curly wig, yellow dotted shirt, blue clown pants and clown shoes exited the woods by an apartment complex.
