Police confirm two attacks by clowns in the Detroit area.

Justin Buechler was climbing a tree outside his Sterling Heights home when he was attacked by a clown. Justin said when he climbed out of the tree the clown was waiting for him on the ground and cut him with a knife. WWMT.com quoted Melinda Buechler, Justin's mother as saying...

"What if he would have had a knife to his throat or something? He would have actually done more damage. He could have killed my kid,"

Local police are also confirming that 2 woman where approached by 3 people wearing clown masks and wielding baseball bats. The clowns started yelling at the ladies, hit a fence with the bat then ran off.

It doesn't seem that the Police have many leads at this point, so if you know anything please contact local authorities.
