HORROR HITS THE STREETS: Killer clowns are BACK as chilling Facebook posts urges gangs of weirdos to stalk neighbourhoods terrifying people this Halloween

The masked mischief-makers have caused panic all over the world in previous years by terrorising people and chasing them at night

Killer clowns are BACK as chilling Facebook posts urges gangs of weirdos to stalk neighbourhoods terrifying people this Halloween.

KILLER clowns are set to step out of the shadows and terrorise people once again this Halloween.

Menacing posts shared on Facebook recently urged the creepy clown gangs to stalk the streets on the night of October 31.

People are worried that killer clowns will be back on the dark streets this year after threatening posts were made on Facebook.

The online page Clown Purge Sydney shared a status earlier this month alluding to the coming holiday.

It read: “Who’s going trick or treating?”

More worryingly, a later post specifically asked for “house addresses” along with an emoji of a clown’s face and a red balloon.

People then commented on the eerie status with residential addresses they wanted the clowns to pay a visit to.

Another post on the page asked for “location ideas”, to which one furious resident replied: “Clowns still doing this s**t f*****g grow up ya f**k heads”.

And this will not be the first time that the sinister clowns have caused mayhem on Halloween.

In recent years, sightings of killer clowns have cropped up all over the world.

In the US, Pennsylvania State Police had to issue a bulletin warning locals that killer clowns were on the rise in 2017.

They said that they’d also had to make at least a dozen arrests the year before┬ábecause clowns had terrified people by chasing them and creeping up on them in car parks.

And in Israel, masked thugs used the craze to throw acid on children in a bid to “sow fear and panic” among the public.
