HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio. — A school district in suburban Cincinnati has closed schools after a woman reported being attacked by a clown overnight.

Reading Community City Schools decided to close after a woman in Reading was allegedly attacked on her front porch by a man dressed as a clown. During the attack the man reportedly threatened students at the schools.

The woman said a man dressed in a striped outfit, a red wig and a white clown mask grabbed her around the throat as she sat smoking on her porch around 4 a.m. on Friday, according to WCPO.

She told police the clown said, “I should just kill you now” and “students and teachers (will) wish they were never born at the junior and senior high school today.”

The high school’s homecoming parade, game and dance will go on Friday as scheduled, according to WCPO. There will be extra police at all events.
