For the past couple weeks, creepy clown sightings shook up the south, with children saying that clowns chased them from the bus stop and others claiming to have seen clowns in the woods.

After a couple weeks, the clowns have made their way to Central Pennsylvania.

Many are startled by the clowns, and hoping that they are caught. Others believe that these are people just getting into the early-Halloween spirit.

Our question is, are these creepy clowns a real threat, or people just pulling pranks?
