Police in the Bradford have taken to Facebook to quell rumors of creepy clowns in their city.

Posted on Wednesday morning, police say that there have been several rumors in the community of clowns trying to lure children and adults into the woods.

Police believe these rumors have stemmed from the recent reports of people in clown costumes acting strangely or threatening in North Carolina and other parts of the US.

Officials say that neither the City of Bradford Police or police in surrounding areas have received any reports regarding similar incidents.

The post reads, "We are addressing this issue only because the rumors have become widespread and feel addressing the issue will hopefully put those concerns to rest."
