(Newser) – The melee over clowns has apparently spread into 2017. Police in West Mifflin, Pa., say they're investigating a report that two men dressed as clowns carrying weapons chased a group of kids playing in the woods on Saturday. Michael Milkowski tells KDKA that he called police after his three kids came home terrified. "They were chasing us," said Milkowski's 8-year-old son, Dylan. Milkowski says the kids then pointed out two men in clown costumes who were running away, one carrying a shotgun and the other a pipe. Police say they found no such individuals during a two-hour search.
