Creepy Clown Purge: Local store removes masks after Facebook warning

A FACEBOOK page which promotes participants dressing up as clowns, often with the intention of scaring or intimidating members of the public, has cropped up again in Sunraysia. 

This week the “Clown Purge Mildura” Facebook page resurfaced after a similar one was banned last year, and its organiser has warned a second “clown purge” is coming to Sunraysia tomorrow. 

Yesterday, Lombard The Paper People retail manager Andrew Kevill confirmed to Sunraysia Daily its Mildura store would temporarily cease the sale of its clown masks to prevent them from being used in the clown purge.
