The whole clown thing continues to get more ridiculous. As clown sightings, both legitimately criminal as well as hoaxes/pranks increase, I expect to hear more stories like this. It is only a matter of time before a clown ends up shot.
In Germany, a clown-prank gone wrong led to a 16 year old being stabbed by a friend.
The teenager donned a clown mask and grabbed a hammer on Monday night, hoping to give a fright to some of his unsuspecting friends, police stated in a report titled “Not at all funny”.At around 7.30pm, he crept up on a group of other teenagers, but one of them, aged 14, didn’t find the prank so amusing, took a knife out of his bag and stabbed his perceived attacker in the torso.
Once his mask was removed, the 14-year-old recognized the disguised clown and treated his wound until an ambulance arrived.Police initially detained the 14-year-old and then brought him to his parents. The 16-year-old had to undergo an operation at a hospital, but his injury is not life threatening, according to Tagesspiegel.
