This clown has been spotted in various locations across the Scottish village.

With the Halloween season approaching, unsettling reports are surfacing from the Scottish village of Skelmorlie about the presence of a creepy clown on the loose. This individual seems to be donning the guise of Pennywise, the eerie clown from Stephen King's "It," often depicted holding a red balloon. In the "It" series, Pennywise, a malevolent clown, uses red balloons to lure children. As per Scotland's Daily Record, this Skelmorlie clown has been placing red balloons in various locations around the small town, which is home to approximately 2,000 residents.

A concerned local resident, preferring to remain anonymous, expressed their apprehension. They mentioned that, due to the reported clown sightings, they are not allowing their two sons, aged 11 and 13, to go out at night. They urged that action should be taken to stop this individual, as their actions are causing fear and distress in the community. The resident emphasized the need for intervention before the situation escalates and potentially terrifies someone to the extent of causing harm.

Additionally, it appears that the clown in Skelmorlie has established a Facebook page using the name Cole Deimos. According to the profile, he claims to have attended clown school and Hellgate High School. On this Facebook page, the Skelmorlie clown shared images of himself in dimly lit streets and crawling on all fours along a village bridge. However, it's worth noting that these posts have been removed, as reported by the Daily Record.

A local resident named Pauline informed the outlet that "everyone in the village" has been discussing the Skelmorlie clown after coming across the Facebook posts.

"I imagine he took his photos and videos down because he was getting too much heat."

Currently, the only content left on Cole Deimos' Facebook page is a video titled "a message to the media."

In the video, which was posted a day before Friday the 13th, the clown challenges the police to apprehend them and mocks the journalists who covered the story.

The video begins with the clown sitting on a park bench, using a voice changer. However, the person's Scottish accent is still clearly audible.

"Should I smile for the cameras with my 'hideous' grin?" the clown challenges.

"Or maybe Pauline's right, perhaps I've gone away. 'Too much heat,' what a silly thing to say," the clown rhymes, referencing the Daily Record's report.

"The police have been informed. Do you think that I care? They'd have to catch me first anyway, and yes, that's a dare."

Directing words towards the Daily Record journalists who covered his story, the clown adds: "This clown doesn't seek fame, glory, or gold. He just wants to play in this so-called 'sleepy town.'"

"So come and join in, and learn to fear the Skelmorlie clown," the clown declares over a video of himself in front of the town's welcome sign.
