Meanwhile, the property manager at Fleetwood Manor Apartments sent out this terrifying letter,
There has been a lot of complaints to the office regarding a clown or a person dressed in clown clothing taking children or trying to lure children in the woods.
At no time should a child be alone at night, or walking in the roads or wooded areas at night.
Also, if a person or persons are seen you are to immediately call the police.
Remember there is a 10 pm curfew for the property to ensure your childrens safety, please keep them in the house during night hours and make sure at ALL times children are supervised.
