ACT Policing ready to repel the clown menace

Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing is aware of recent reports of people wearing clown masks and intimidating members of the community, as part of a viral social media stunt which originated in the United States.

Any type of intimidating, threatening or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and will be investigated by police.

If you feel unsafe or see anyone behaving in a suspicious and threatening manner, call police on 131 444.

In an emergency call Triple Zero (000).
