ZILWAUKEE TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Local police want your help to crack down on so-called creepy clowns.

People dressed as scary clowns have popped up all across the country in recent weeks, including here in Mid-Michigan.           

So, the Zilwaukee Township Police are asking you to help this Halloween by making sure teens and adults avoid dressing up as clowns.

"It has reached the point where it went from being a scary prank, to recent events where the person dressed as a clown has actually chased and assaulted people," the department said on their Facebook page.

The Saginaw County Prosecutor said his office will issue charges against anyone who dresses like a clown for the purpose of frightening or harming others.
